Upping hospitality and embracing diversity is what we strive for at Counter & Bodega. We are a family owned and operated full service sit down restaurant and bar located in the heart of Chelsea, New York. We feature Multi-Latin comfort food with a heavy Puerto Rican influence. I've resided in Manhattan, NYC for over 20 years (12 of those years spent in Hell's Kitchen) and recognize that the young natives who grew up here have developed more global palettes. We provide a cozy and welcoming setting offering excellent service, signature libations, and unique menu items, coupled with a rotation of weekly and daily specials. Counter & Bodega is a privately owned company.
The décor for Counter & Bodega features dark wood and slate accented construction, a beautiful deep blue marble bar, with tufted leather seating and sounds of Salsa hits and Latin jazzy house music playing in the background, creating an atmosphere that is inviting, comfortable, and cheerful. Chelsea still reflects the ethnic and social diversity of the population. Hence, we would like to attract all groups and fill the void that currently exists in this neighborhood.
Counter & Bodega combines great style, consistent service, and genuine hospitality to create a truly unique experience.
Our vision is to have a positive impact on the Chelsea Community while providing them with an awesome casual dining experience with a contemporary and chic space for our neighbors, locals, vendors, physicians, professors, graduate students, business clientele and other members of the community to enjoy good food, drinks, and each other’s company. As the community becomes more diverse our goal is to connect these groups together to create new bonds and relationships. We opened our doors to the public on October 1st, 2018. Looking forward to seeing and serving you!
