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.

Loster Rolls Are FAB

The very Best Lobster Roll in NYC, maybe better than Maine. The Party platter is great, 12 mini buttered buns filled wth lobster and the cole slaw is great. They serve late but get there early they run out of lobster.
The drinks are creative and gigantic. Dive in.

The best lobster rolls and freshest oysters!!!! Tasty cocktails try the
Snowball. The decor is mid-century modern and the glasses are all vintage. I LOVE this place.
