West 26th Street Entrance, Chelsea
This stretch has upscale American dining and galleries galore on the streets, while up at park level, there's more art—and the chance to gaze out at the city while putting yourself on display, at the 26th Street Viewing Spur.
Dining: Trestle on Tenth
The airy bar, brick-lined dining room and cozy back garden are for those in the know. Modern American cuisine gets custom accents from Swiss owner-chef Ralf Kuettel. Start with steak tartare with quail egg and for the main dish sample calves' liver with potato rostï. Be sure to try the selection of cheeses and wines.
Shopping: Printed Matter, Inc.
It's easy to lose yourself in this nonprofit organization's bookstore, full of thousands of art publications (with more available online). Printed Matter stocks all kinds of hard-to-find books and materials, including art and photo titles—both old and new.
