The long, thin venue of restaurant Friedman’s Lunch, a former delicatessen inside Chelsea Market, has an open-kitchen behind the former glassed-in deli counter, bar stool seating in the front next to the take-out counter, and two-seater tables in the back for sit-down dining. The décor mirrors an antiqued farmhouse, with aged wallpaper, kick-knacks, unique coat hooks, and dark wood tables, keeping a comfortable and intimate feel, without any sense of pretension.


Our corner booth was small but spacious, and service was absolutely impeccable. Denim shirts and black aprons kept the farm-house theme in play, and water never went unfilled, drinks attended to, and dishes perfectly timed and served.
