A word from MASQ Restaurant & Lounge
Like the masquerades from which it takes its name, Masq Restaurant & Lounge transforms the typical cocktail bar into something completely different. Our chefs have created an imaginative New American Cuisine Menu with a New Orleans flair. From spicy Jambalaya to Flat Iron Steak with Avocado & Pico de Gallo, to the best Crabcakes this side of Maryland, the cuisine is extraordinary! Alongside Flatbreads, Toasty Grilled Panini and MASQ Mini Burgers on Sweet Hawaiian Bread, the menu includes Artisanal Cheese Plates ideal for sharing and crisp, fresh Salads.

    Walked in early and asked to sit at bar because table was being cleaned. Place was empty, but sat at bar & got a drink. 12 min later, finished drink... still no table. Asked hostess when we could be seated. She said in a few min because the table was being cleaned. Clowns! They don't want you to eat there. So don't :(

    I tried Masq for the first time, while looking for a quiet restaurant near the UN to catch up with an old friend. It was a perfect choice. The restaurant was very quiet and the food and service was excellent! My guess is that is more of a night time destination from the general atmosphere and the size I'd the bar, but for me, it's a wonderful lunchtime find for the neighborhood. The sampler platter was delicious and enough for two. Will definitely return whenever in the neighborhood.

    First we tried the sampler and all the items were fried and really bad. There was no taste in the food. My sliders were so bad that i only ate one and even salad was bad.
