Now Open Near The Batch Yard: The Winnisimmet Lounge

The constant ebb and flow of the seasons inform the ever-changing menu at The Winnisimmet Lounge, which features a mix of classic and contemporary Italian plates. Despite the fact it only opened in Chelsea about two months ago, the restaurant and cocktail bar has already been racking up the rave reviews for its creative food and drink.

Invite a friend along and enjoy the upscale fare for yourself, starting with a light bite like the grilled Caesar salad, the tuna tartare, or the arancini with braised oxtail ragu. For the main course, dig into a dish such as the rigatoni tossed with basil pesto and zucchini or the grilled sirloin steak with romesco and grilled broccolini. For a more casual entree, opt for the Winnisimmet burger topped with pickled red onions, slow-roasted tomatoes, and cheddar, all piled inside of a brioche bun.
