Chelsea Living Room is a new restaurant from owner Zachary Zimmerman. Zimmerman is a veteran NYC restaurateur and was previously involved with recognizable spots like Club Philippe in East Hampton, The Long Haul on East 34th Street, and Paris Cafe on South Street. Sadly, both Club Philippe and The Long Haul have shut down, but Paris Cafe is still running smoothly today.

Zimmerman’s latest project, Chelsea Living Room, is currently slated to open up sometime this year at 243 West 14th Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. The location was formerly home to Hot n Juicy Crawfish, a popular Cajun seafood chain that has sadly closed all of its New York stores over the past few years. According to Zimmerman’s prospective layout for the space, the restaurant is expected to seat 100 guests inside at one time, with an additional 11-seat stand-up bar in the center. The basement space meanwhile will be reserved for the kitchen and storage.

Once open, Chelsea Living Room is expected to serve a wide array of elevated, fine dining dishes. Sample appetizers from the menu include Hamachi crudo, tuna tartare, and even an option for traditional caviar service curated exclusively by the restaurant’s chef. The restaurant’s entree options include pasta dishes like cacio e pepe and lasagna, as well as main dishes like strip steak, roasted half chicken, branzino, and veal burgers. For dessert, current options are tiramisu, gelato, and vanilla panna cotta.

Additionally, Zimmerman is also looking to acquire a full restaurant liquor license for Chelsea Living Room in order to serve up spirits and cocktails. He is currently proposing operating hours of 4:00 PM – 2:00 AM Sunday through Wednesday, and 4:00 PM – 4:00 AM Thursday, through Saturday, though those hours are subject to change pending the board’s approval. Unfortunately, Zimmerman has not yet released any social media profiles for Chelsea Living Room, so you will just need to stay alert for further updates.
