Delicious Plates to Share

My sister and I ate here for a joint birthday celebration. I would have literally eaten anything on the menu. It all looked great. My sister on the other hand is a picky eater. Our server recommended that we share 3-4 plates, we opted for 4. They came out gradually, starting from smallest to... read more

We planned a bridal shower here from another state. Andrea was above and beyond accommodating. They placed our party on the landing overlooking the restaurant and it was PERFECT! Jordan was our dedicated waiter and was completely on task for 18 women that all wanted different drinks at different times and he was a trooper! The food was EXCELLENT as... More

Perfect food, perfect service for a very important party planned long distance. Seldom does a plan come out better than anticipated. Thank you for making the day perfect and special thanks to Jordan.

I don't think there are any bad things to say about The Stanton Social. It is my favourite restaurant in NYC. Fantastic atmosphere, great service and fantastic food. French Onion Soup dumplings are the ultimate.

Innovative delicious food, great vibe! We were recommended this by someone who lives in LES so took the teenagers; they loved it! It's also recommended by Jason Atherton! He used it as an inspiration for the Pollen Street Social in London. We were 4, they suggested getting around 8 plates to share, but we chose the restaurant week menu so... More

A friend of mine who lives in the Lower East Side recommended this place for us. We were a group of 6 women on a NYC girls trip. It was perfect in every way. It is very trendy and chic, but those who like that, don't miss this place. We each ordered 2 items (doubled so we could all try).... More

This place was recommended by a former local because of its swank factor. We went to this restaurant twice this week while we were in NYC. My husband and I went out a few days before the kids arrived. We had a drink before dinner. The cocktails were fabulous. For dinner, We sat upstairs were the bar & DJ Were.... More

We came here as part of a bachelorette party and none of the attendees had any complaints. We had a great time ordering a bunch of little plates to share and all were delicious. My personal favorites were the chicken and waffles and crab cakes! For desert we had the birthday cake shooters and they were fabulous! The sprinkles brought... More

I booked this restaurant for dinner with my better half on a recent holiday to New York having heard great reviews of the setting and food. The downstairs restaurant looked very cool, but unfortunately we didn't get to see much of that part. Although we booked a table for 8:45, we were told when we arrived that the table was... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
