Tacos and Pac-Man in Chelsea


Manhattan is many things. Sometimes the best of the borough is found in the dive bars and low key food carts and food counters. Enjoy some of the best tacos in the city at Los Tacos in Chelsea Market. Afterward grab a drink at Barcade and enjoy some classic arcade games along with your drink of choice.
