The Stanton Social’s Phone Number: (212) 995-0099
The Stanton Social, on the Lower East Side, is one of the best places in NYC to both drink and eat – even almost a decade after its opening. The bar atmosphere is cozy, sexy and chic, the wine and cocktail lists are fantastic and the food is notoriously delicious.
If it’s the latter you’re looking for, the dining area is good for boozy brunch, groups, small bites, birthday dinners, casual dates, celebrity sightings, girls’ dinners, business meals, entertaining out of town friends and people watching.
The bar area upstairs is good for casual dates, business drinks, meeting hot girls, guys’ nights out and girls’ nights out.
Good For Casual Dates: The bar is probably better for this than the restaurant, which can be overwhelming at times. Still, both are good for someone you want to impress/sleep with.
Good For Groups: The dining area is so huge, The Stanton Social is shockingly good at accommodating big groups without feeling cramped (despite the spot’s popularity). Just call ahead for a reservation and you’ll be good.
Good For Celebrity Sightings: It’s not quite the hotspot it used to be but you can still spot the likes of Adrien Grenier, Taylor Swift or Jake Gyllenhall hanging out in a dark corner.
