Last night we had a great evening and discovered yet another highly recommendable NYC spot - The Stanton Social. This is a fantastic restaurant/bar/lounge on the Lower East side. The decor was a mixture between chic lounge and urban industrial with white painted brick walls, steel lights and leather upholstery. The cocktails and food were amazing - a kind of modern American tapas - and luckily we were six so much was ordered and I was able to taste a good portion of the menu. Delicious! The vibe was great, and although loud, like any typical Manhattan spot, was a wonderful place for an evening out with friends.
