ChopShop II (not to be confused with ChopShop, just a few blocks away) is a Pan-Asian, intimate and minimalist restaurant. For those of you who don’t eat meat, there are plenty of options. Take if from Alex and Sarah’s hilarious review (listen below): “The dessert was insane”, “it’s really, really cute” and “Dee Dee ran that shit” (Dee Dee potentially not her name).

We started with avocado tofu spring rolls dipped in a peanut sauce (YUM), and for our entrees we shared delicious salmon fried rice, and eggplant & shrimp in a green curry sauce. We had to top it off with a caramel/coconut flan and it was one of the best desserts we both have ever had.

The modern & romantic atmosphere definitely makes this spot a great place for an intimate conversation.
Take a stroll on the high line afterwards. This place is a Chelsea neighborhood gem and a perfect restaurant for a romantic yet relaxed date night.

Dee Dee (the main chick in charge) basically runs the restaurant and is so cool!
