Overview

Lower Eastside club-restaurant from the Tao Group and chef Chris Santos. The space is massive, spanning multiple dining spaces and a downstairs club all decorated with sprawling colorful murals. You aren't really going there to eat, you're going there to party with a group. However, the menu is surprisingly  good considering it doesn't have to be. The kitchen dispenses elevated global street fare offered tapas-style. Much like Santos's other spots, there are creative takes on every dish like pretzel steak tartare, broccoli cheese soup dumps, sticky rice dumplings and crispy bao buns.
