Chef/owner Chris Santos has teamed up with Tao owner Richard Wolf, Peter Kane originally of Double Happiness and Happy Ending, and the James Beard 'Best New Restaurant Design' award winning firm AvroKo, to create the newest 'jewel' of Manhattan's Lower East Side. <br /><br />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 raw bar, a lounge and the hippest new bar in New York City. Dishes range from $7 - $18 each.

"The food was delicious,interesting, different, the restaurant had a nice vibe, was fun and good for a large group.i was disappointed that dishes meant for 6 came without a serving piece,&when I asked the server for one, he said "huh?" I didn't think this as such a strange request. also, clean plates 1/2 thru meal were appreciated,but giving me back my dirty fork & knife wasn't. can't a nice restaurant replenish silverware????? waitress was good, but couldn't find her after the last main courses were served. hard to order dessert, coffee & get check."

"Been to Chat many times & I keep giving it 1 more chance. think its chances are up though. the service is bad- waiters gather by the doorway & it's impossible to get someone's attention. our water glasses were never filled, bread basket not replenished, took 10 -15 mins. to get drink delivered (bloody mary came w/o celery although every other one we saw had it), had to ask for the specials, took 20 mins for waiter to come to take our order, good 40 mins to get lunch. food ok but not remarkable. best thing about the place is outdoor seating. waiter very grouchy."

"This was 1 of the strangest dinners ever . We were seated at a corner table, with 2 people on 1 side & 1 person next to them on the other (L-shaped). However, the table for 4 next to us had a baby in a car seat between the 2 on my side of the table, so 1 woman was basically in my lap for most of the dinner. why did they allow them to sit this way?& why then seat us there? the restaurant was very loud, & therefore the piped in music was totally unnecessary.food was good but service erratic-didn't refill our water glasses until we received the check, & experienced about 1 hr wait bw apps and main courses. they are trying-owner/maitre'd walked around trying to make sure everything was ok.not sure waiter was totally knowledgeable about menu."

"Been here before but this experience was not as positive. Perhaps since we were a table of 6 and therefore the gratuity was already included in the bill, the service was poor. It took a good 10 minutes for my husband to get his drink even after asking 2 waiter where it was. 5 diners at the table were served their entree while the 6th was served when they were almost finished (and hers was a cold salad!). The noise level was so high that we couldn't hear the person across the table speak. Food was good, but this didn't make the experience any better."

Elm Street Oyster House is a little gem of a restaurant, located right off Greenwich Avenue, in the heart of downtown. We offer the finest quality seafood from raw oysters to yellowfin tuna and king salmon, in a casual, friendly, elegant atmosphere. We have a world class wine list and a knowledgeable, accommodating staff. You will not find a better seafood restaurant in Fairfield County Connecticutt, guaranteed.

"best thing is that you can eat outside. food was only okay (i had spaghetti squash which was usually excellent in the past- this time it was very undercooked). waiters are nice but seem very unprofessional. seems as though they added extra tables and you sit on top of those next to you. even hard to find a way out!"

Lexington Square Cafe invites guests into a vast space that combines cosmopolitan chic with a friendly atmosphere. Its distinct decor exudes elegance and warmth, so it accommodates the needs of its patrons, formal and informal. A spacious main dining room with a 17-foot high ceiling and different tiers provides guests with various dining niches. Cherry wood wine racks, alabaster lighting and a grand, sweeping staircase add to Lexington Square's sumptuousness. An upstairs, warm dining room with butternut squash walls and cozy booths is perfect for those who prefer a little more intimacy. Still another option during the warmth of spring, summer and fall is a private, flowery patio for casual al fresco dining. Chef Gerald Alcin has created a menu that has "SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE". The most popular items on his menu are Thai Lettuce Wraps, Grilled Lobster "Mojito", Chopped Salad(#1 Seller), King Salmon Club, Sesame Crusted Sea Scallops & 20oz. Brown Sugar Rubbed Shell Steak.

"we hadn't been back to plates since it first open (not for any specific reason- just didn't think about it. i do remember that when i went then, it was extremely noisy), and we had a delicious meal with great service. the restaurant wasn't crowded on this particular evening. only suggestion i have is I like to order 2 apps for dinner, especially in the summer, and there wasn't a great choice of apps for me. the salad i had (i think beet and feta cheese) was delicious and very ample, but there was no other app on the menu that i wanted to order. would definitely go back."

"food was delicious and our waitress was excellent in serving us promptly, but appropriately since we had to get to Lincoln Center by a certain time. I am not sure why I had to be ushered to a table across the entire restaurant to the back room though, when there were plenty of empty tables in the front room for 2. just seemed very odd and unnecessary- kind of like we weren't good enough for the front room."
