Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Chef Chris Santos (Stanton Social) brings his globally inflected small plates to an another AvroKO-designed fantasyland on the Lower East Side. A curated thrift store in front hawks vintage jewelry, boom boxes and guitars; a gigantic one-story crystal chandelier fronts a grand, curving staircase; and the main dining room opens up under a massive skylight. Though the interior aims to dazzle, the food offers comforting flavors—grilled cheese and tomato soup dumplings, and mains like braised veal short ribs with a tangerine-BBQ glaze and onion rings. To drink there are updates on cocktail classics, like the B&E Pink Lady (gin, house-made grenadine, lemon, applejack), but freebie seekers might want to head to the bathroom, where a bartender slings gratis flutes of bubbly.
