Choices abound in this neighborhood, but the Bright Shop, which has been serving its own supreme brand of Mex fusion on a busy Chelsea corner for more than a decade, gets a special nod. Sit with your morning cup of Joe and behold the construction of true huevos rancheros, with two layers of soft tortilla, two eggs, and a mass of beans, sour cream, cilantro, and melted jack cheese. For dinner, try a bowl of green-chile posole with smoky cornbread on the side. There's a sturdy chili also.


Daily, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Bright Food is closed on Saturdays from 5 p.m.-6 p.m.
