Stanton Social

Stanton SocialThe Stanton Social, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, is basically my go-to restaurant for NY dinners because it has great food coupled with great ambiance.  The menu is perfect for large parties because the dishes are shareable. My favorite thing on the menu is the “Chicken & Waffles”, with the “French Onion Soup Dumplings” running a close second.
