Marta, located inside the Martha Washington Hotel in Chelsea, north of Madison Square Park, is a a chic Italian restaurant from Maialino's Chef Nick Anderer.  It is an absolute instagram dream inside.  I stumbled across it one morning in the city with my husband, we wanted to have a "sit down" breakfast before work and it looked so beautiful inside, their chandelier was EVERYTHING, SO, we decided to try it out.  We waited a little while for our food, there was apparently a staffing shortage, but we finally got our food (pastries and eggs).  Luckily, the Manager, Lisa, was super hospitable and gave us our lattes on the house.  Truly exceptional customer service if you asked me.  The light in here is KILLER, with floor to ceiling windows throughout.  The vibe is chic and welcoming at the same time and the hotel lobby is all white, decorated with minimalism in mind.  Marta serves breakfast (their avocado toast is the jam), lunch & dinner (their thin crust pizzas are supposed to be the bomb).  I love going there in the morning and can't wait to go back; this is another favorite spot of mine.
