My husband, girlfriends, and I went to Chat n Chew (CnC) on a Friday night. My friends and I were just looking up restaurants in Union Square and came across Chat n Chew. CnC is known for its Comfort Food, or American Soul Food. It’s the kind of food your grandmother would make… greasy, buttery, and cooked with love. I was a bit apprehensive on what to order because I wanted to eat healthy, but I also had to try their famous Macaroni and Cheese. My friend, Jhiane, and I decided to split the Macaroni and Cheese and the Grilled Buffalo Shrimp appetizer.
I had such a great time Friday night, I am so blessed to have such a great husband and such amazing friends. We ended our night in New York City watching The Back-up Plan starring J.Lo. I really liked the movie, J.Lo looked gorgeous, and I had some good laughs. The perfect evening with dinner, movie, and great company!

Chat n Chew has a rustic atmosphere which makes this a kid friendly place. I also recommend this place for groups.

MENU – $$
Chat n Chew Menu. The prices here are reasonable ranging from $10-$16. The Macaroni and Cheese is amazing here, definitely try it, it also comes in a smaller size as an appetizer. Cocktails are about $8 each.
Dinner for 4 people:
4 entrees + 3 sodas = $60 (including 18%-20% tip) Now that’s a bargain for NYC!
My husband ordered the Miss Patty’s Chicken Sammy, I had a couple bites and thought the sandwich was a bit dry for my liking. However, this would be a healthy option without the fries.
VERDICT – 3 / 5
If you are going to consider going to CnC, the Mac n Cheese alone is reason enough to eat here. It is amazing! Chat n Chew is a fun hangout with friends, but the other entrees weren’t so great. I don’t anticipate going back anytime soon because I believe there are much better places in Manhattan that would serve delicious soul food with a better atmosphere, and let’s not forget a diet coke machine that actually works. For now, I give this place a 3 until I try something better here. My friends and husband didn’t really care for this place either, however the Mac n Cheese ROCKS!
