Lower East Side
A gorgeous chandelier, lizard-skin banquettes and plush retro booths underline the 1940s inspiration behind this AvroKO-designed tri-level restaurant. The decor, however, does not steal the show: Chris Santos (Suba, Wyanoka) turns out 40 wildly inventive shareable plates, like a French-onion soup that comes in dumpling form and red-snapper tacos lavished with fiery mango-and-avocado salsa. Don’t be deterred by the wait—you’ll get in…eventually.

We've often heard, "sharing is caring". On the Lower East Side, The Stanton Social has those same sentiments. The idea behind this restaurant is, to serve everything as small plates to allow a more family-style dining experience, trying lots of things. You can read the rest of my review with photos here:
