Pounds & Ounces is a Chelsea based restaurant with such an appropriately Chelsea styled vibe. The mural on the back wall says it all—you’ll know what I mean when you see it!
The food is a fun adaptation on traditional bar food. I ordered the Caesar “Un-Classic” which is a play on the Caesar salad. Instead of Romain, Arugula was used. Instead of the Caesar dressing was Asiago. The croutons were replaced with deep fried gnocchi. It made for a truly delicious dish! As someone who loves a classic Caesar salad, this was a fun way to comfortably eat a dish I knew I would like while also trying something new. FUN!
Before moving forward, I have to say, THE BATTERED FRIES ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! When you go to Pounds & Ounces, you must get them. MUST!
I can’t speak for the main dishes as we didn’t order any—AN EXCUSE TO GO BACK—but the appetizers and salads were all fun, fresh, delicious and worth going back for on their own! Go and try it! Apparently they are open late night. And with cocktails like their “Judy Garland”—of which I had two and highly recommend—I suggest you peruse the drink menu! CHEERS!
