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.

We visited the Stanton Social last night! We had a great time, the food comes in sharing plates, so as a couple we sampled 6 of the dishes. Can't recommend enough the Tuna wontons and pea crusted salmon... In fact when we go back, we might just order double helpings of these!
The restaurant Is über cool and a great place to eat,especially if you are in a big group! Beware though the music is quite loud so if you are wanting an evening of whispering sweet nothing's... This place is not for you!

Trendy spot downtown where the neighborhood is iffy but the food is spot on. The decor is different to say the least and the service can be poor at times the food saves the day. Great tasting and decent portions...

My friends and I arranged a bachelorette party for my sister at Stanton Social and they did a wonderful job! We got several appetizers, three types of entrees and dessert for $55 per person, and an additional open bar for our whole dinner for $55 per person - an excellent deal for NYC! The food was creative and full of flavor. I definitely recommend the tuna poke and the chicken arepas, and the donut for dessert!

Spent a week in NYC, eating out for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This was my fave, great atmosphere, lighting and decor. Bar upstairs had great cocktails while waiting to be seated. Highly reccomend!

This was a great date night restaurant. A bit loud and of course crowded. The food was great, my problem was the plates came too fast and it was hard to see what we were eating. This is experience, being married to a chef we wanted to look at all the aspects of each plate, at one point the flashlight on his phone was used. My favorites was the onion soup, brisket sandwich, and the doughnuts! Also, if tapas is the the theme it needs to be carried over to dessert. I really did love it and would go back.
