THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Highpoint Bistro & Bar Restaurant Review

: This small-ish restaurant smack in the center of bustling Chelsea offers a nice reprieve. The affordable menu focuses on New American fare, but with many global twists. A good number of the appetizers could double as an entrée, as portions run large here: the four sliders, for example, which come with a basket of shoestring fries, or the three very satisfying tuna tartare tacos. A more creative dish is the squash “steak” au poivre, which is not really a steak but a rectangular block of squash sitting atop seasonal vegetables; for the most part the dish works. So does the suckling pig, which arrives on a large plate with a potpourri of other tastes, including spätzle and an inventive shrimp-stuffed cabbage. The wine list is well selected and affordable, as bottles are labeled under three categories: $25, $35 and $45.
