Chelsea, 23rd Street at Sixth Avenue

All right, all right! I'll call it Chelsea. I'll have to change a bunch of posts from Midtown South to Chelsea. Soon. It doesn't seem right, but I keep seeing the block east of Seventh referred to as Chelsea and now there's Chelsea Nails across the street. That's just the last straw. I give up. Uh, oh. Even Wikipedia says it now "runs as far east as Sixth Avenue." But why?

From across the street, Your Taste seems promising; the red sign says Tapas Wine & Beer and it looks very colorful and inviting. A closer look, however, reveals a takeout counter and the promise of coffee, dessert, pasta, soup, sandwich, etc. Take a look at their menu – it has most everything except no tapas and no wine. Beer they have. Maybe the signmaker screwed up, and they got a discount on it. By the way, that is their sign; it says Your Taste at the top.

See map.
