Art lovers and foodies unite at Café Bamba

Any gallery crawl in NYC wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Chelsea—the trendy neighborhood on Manhattan’s western reaches that’s home to blue-chip institutions like Gagosian and David Zwirner, performance art spaces such as The Kitchen and pretty much anything and everything in between. This epicenter of art is also home to an almost never-ending list of intimate eateries, offering everything from tried-and-true comfort food staples to creative takes on international delights.

If you want to get your gallery fix and enjoy a hearty (and healthy) meal at the same time, check out Café Bamba. This new Chelsea destination is a lively Euro-Latin bistro and art gallery all rolled into one. While feasting on kale salad with avocado, pears, tomato, almonds and tamarind vinaigrette; steelhead trout sandwiches stacked with savory trout, kale, onions, capers and wasabi aioli (for an extra kick); and other crave-inducing breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch offerings, guests can view a rotating selection of street art provided by VolaVida Gallery—the only gallery in Manhattan entirely dedicated to this urban art form. The works on display at Café Bamba change every few weeks, and each new exhibit includes a meet and greet exhibition with the artists.
