Restaurants in New York

I found two good restaurants during my weekend stay in New York:

202 (75 Ninth Avenue)

Located on the exit of the post-industrial chic Chelsea Market to the 75th Avenue, this restaurant is a great place for weekend brunch. Their English breakfast has a nice contemporary touch in it.

The Stanton Social (99 Stanton Street)

A contemporary tapas-style restaurant in Lower East Side. With background music of good taste (including a Brazilian jazz tune from the 1960s), they serve a wide variety of foods in tapas style (ie. not in typical American style of a horrendously big portion). Baby spinach salad was beautiful with roasted corn bits functioning as a revealing accent of taste. Grilled hanger steak is much more than a typical American steak, accompanied with tater tots in Spanish bravas sauce. Yummy. And the friendly service is excellent to perfection.
