The Stanton Social
Time Out says
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.

Stanton Social is a pricier option on the LES, but the ambience can't be beat on the weekend. The room was bustling and the base was thumping with the perfect playlist combining throwbacks and newbies alike. Be warned: drinks are PRICEY no matter how you take 'em - regardless of shaken, stirred, or shots - it'll run you a pretty penny here. Great for perhaps a more special occasion.
The craft cocktails and small plates at Stanton Social are a standout. The unique dishes and raw bar offerings are perfect for sharing among friends, and gives everyone a little taste of something different. Two of the major crowdpleasers are the French onion soup dumplings and the delicious sliders. Another amazing addition to the meal is the offerings from the raw bar menu, which while a little pricey, are definitely worthwhile.
Make sure to also go for a cocktail at this spot - the extensive drink menu doesn't disappoint. For large groups or weekend meals, definitely book a reservation as it's bound to get crowded.
