Stepping Back in Time

morans chelseaMoran’s Chelsea opened its doors in 1957 as an Irish restaurant and bar and has been treating its loyal customers to an array of contemporary American cuisine ever since. The historic building dates back to the early 1800s—a time when the surrounding neighborhood was outlined with views of tall ships and the streets were busy with longshoremen.

Our evening started off by imbibing a classic Gibson and beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, one of the wines offered up by the glass, alongside some briny and extremely fresh Blue Point Oysters and Little Neck Clams. 

Next up was the Baked Goat Cheese & Mango Salad (mixed greens, mixed peppers, citrus vinaigrette) and the beautifully seasoned Lobster Bisque—a delicious diversion before venturing onto our entrees.

lamb chopsThe food at Moran’s is truly classic and this was articulated by the succulent Grilled Lamb Chops (served with sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes) which were devoured with tastings of the delicious sides of the Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese and the Truffle Gorgonzola Fries.

Along with an extensive collection of Tiffany Shades, the restaurant boasts a spacious dining area, a cherry wood bar that survived prohibition and is accented with a blazing fireplace to warm your bones on a cold winter’s night, and an outdoor sidewalk café with views of the Hudson for the warmer months.

Take a step back in time and enjoy Moran’s!
