When you walk into Chat n Chew on East 16th Street in Union Square, NYC (right next to The New School) you are taken back to a country-like diner that serves up great food to match. Chat n Chew has been a New York institution for 20 years and is celebrating by giving anyone who comes in and says “Happy Birthday” a piece of their signature Apple Pie A La Mode until the month ends– don’t miss out on this deal!
I first came to Chat n Chew a few years ago during my Rachael Ray intern days, but it has changed since then. The restaurant went under some new renovations and has really grown up. The walls and table are made of wood but it still has the old New York classy feel to it! They have a new chef, Eli who is the wife of the manager, Octavio. They really make Chat n Chew work, while Eli cooks you can always see Octavio greeting diners in the front of the house.
If you are going to eat at Chat n Chew come hungry and ready to leave happy. One of their signature dishes is their mac n cheese which is amazing! It’s been a signature dish for a long time now. It’s packed with cheese, not too many breadcrumbs and is served hot, perfection!
Chat n Chew has changed in a way that I can admire, they are now use seasonal ingredients from the local Union Square Greenmarket with their dishes. As you can see in the picture above, they put an emphasis on using farm fresh greens in their dishes whether it be a salad or their juicy fried chicken. The fried chicken is perfect, juicy, and makes you feel guilt-free when eating especially with the veggies on the side.
Chat n Chew also has you covered with happy hour specials daily from 3-7. They also have a great staff behind the bar serving up favorites like mojitos and sangria to their signature Chat n Chew punch. All our handcrafted with great liquors ready for you to enjoy!
I know I am definitely looking forward to going back to Chat n Chew to enjoy some fried chicken, mac n cheese, and more! Everything is so delicious and it’s a perfect little gem in the city, ready to serve you for lunch and dinner! Everyone is treated like family at Chat n Chew!
