Chef/owner Chris Santos has teamed up with Tao owner Richard Wolf, and the James Beard 'Best New Restaurant Design' award winning firm AvroKo, to create The Stanton Social, a staple and neighborhood favorite of the Lower East Side.

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 are 3 professional African American women who were excited about visiting the restaurant but the experience left me feeling hurt and disappointed. We were mistreated, overlooked and minimized. Because of this experience I do not want to support Vandal, Beauty of Essex or any of the Tao restaurants. If you don’t see any value in the support of black women than I will not spend my time or money. I will not suggest the Tao chain to friends or colleagues. I’m sorry that women, especially black women, are still undervalued as customers.

I like how it’s all appetizers to share instead of courses. Very full so make reservations beforehand.

That needs to be better. Asides from that the food was great and the service overall was good.

For the price of the items, I expected to be wowed by everything I ordered...but was not. Would be nice if they offered bottomless brunch. Overall, the place is beautiful and cozy. Service was good and it seems great for having a small group brunch/dinner.

We went on a Sunday so was pretty quiet but the service was terrible. Waitress was so spaced out, verging on rude - got items wrong (missed items off the order, couldn’t understand a wine order) and generally no eye on customer service at all with a challenging attitude. Such a shame as without her it would have been a fantastic evening.
