The folks at Cafeteria have honed a surefire formula: amped-up comfort food plus an unquestionably hip Chelsea setting, times 24 hours a day. It’s a formula that works. Even though Cafeteria’s no longer got that new-restaurant vibe, well-dressed boys and girls keep returning, brunch after brunch and night after night, for crispy-gooey cheddar-and-fontina mac 'n cheese, Cobb salad, and fried chicken with waffles—not to mention the prime people-watching location (you’re sure to run into someone you know, or at least recognize from US Weekly) and a downstairs bar to get you through the wee hours of a Saturday (or Monday) morning.
