Chef/owner Chris Santos has teamed up with Tao owner Richard Wolf, and the James Beard 'Best New Restaurant Design' award winning firm AvroKo, to create The Stanton Social, a staple and neighborhood favorite of the Lower East Side. The design of this three level hot spot tips it's hat to the neighborhood's garment history and offers diners a culinary odyssey. All menu items are designed for sharing, offering guests a chance to experience multiple dishes and flavors throughout their meal. In addition to its 120 seats, The Stanton Social offers a lounge and bar on the upper level, featuring guest DJs. Dishes range from $9-$30 each.

Fun Brunch

I recently went to Stanton Social with a group of 8 friends. Unlike your usual stroller ridden and maple syrup covered brunch spot (don't get me wrong I love kids and I LOVE syrup) Stanton Social feels unique with a live jazz band, subdued lighting, and an interesting decor. I like that they serve... read more

Creative drink specialties, delicious tapa style sharing. Top tastes were the samosas, onion soup dumplings in escargot bowl. Chicken waffles could have used a little sauce. Salmon was just ok. Cocktails were a big highlight.

If you have read many of my reviews you know I do not give out Excellent ratings to just any restaurant. This one, however, definitely deserves it. We went there for Father's Day Brunch. We ordered eight or so of the small plates. Each one was absolutely delicious. As they arrived we kept saying, "This is my favorite." but then... More

My wife and I came to New York for a week and a New Yorker advised that we should pop round to Stanton Social for a meal. We decided to pop round last night and what a great evening, food, ambience, music, lighting were all great. Really an experience worth having and then when paying the bill we found that... More

I made reservations for a Sunday Brunch because of seeing Chris on Chopped and the pictures on Review sites. This was a great experience. They serve each of the items in small portions meant for sharing. You just order a considerable number of dishes based on the number of people in your party. This allowed for sampling of many items,... More

For all of you who enjoy picking on small plates and enjoying the most flavorful bites ever imagined, please come here. I have been coming to Stanton Social for years! I have never been disappointed with the food or the service. If there is a wait, they'll send you to the bar upstairs. Of course, I always order a fantastic... More

A wonderful meal for my 30th birthday when we visited NYC. Great service, lovely atmosphere, and amazing food. Would recommend the Nori Spiced Tuna Poke Wonton, Korean Short Rib Tacos, Mexican Sweet Corn Ravioli, Warm Doughnuts, and Movie Theater Sundae. All amazing!!! The French Onion Soup Dumplings were also good, but I wouldn't order them again. Can't wait to come... More

This is a great place on the Lower East Side of Manhattan with very unique and delicious food. It is a bit of a scene in the evening, however at brunch it is perfect. When I was there, a fun jazz band was playing to enhance the upbeat vibe, but it was not too loud for conversation. The cocktails were... More

Came here with friends. First impressions were less than ideal- despite all being present, had to go to bar whilst table was set but this took over half an hour! Also the cocktail I had was a bit naff bad you couldn't charge to the table. Aside from that everything was great. It's tapas style food so all sharing but... 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.
