THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bongo Restaurant Review

: Chelsea is home to a delightfully diverse crowd so a seafood eatery featuring mid-century modern furniture is a perfect fit in this hood. On the edge of Chelsea’s gallery zone, this spot draws the artsy crowd into its lounge with its George Nelson sofas and Eames chairs. Bongo also just happens to serve ocean basics such as freshly shucked oysters, a lobster roll party platter, spicy oyster shooters, and chowder-briny accompaniments for the lengthy kick-ass house cocktail menu.
