TOWN Concierge Picks: Tao Downtown October 30, 2013

NoHo, Manhattan
TOWN Concierge Picks: Tao Downtown, Manhattan, New York

TAO Downtown

Maritime Hotel | 92 Ninth Avenue, between 16th and 17th Streets
www.taorestaurant.com/downtown

This is not merely TAO’s second location in NYC. It is a complete reinvention, a reiteration, a revolution if you will, in Pan-Asian dining.

Its uptown location touched down more than a decade ago, carrying with it the newly minted “vibe dining” trend. This time around, they’re taking it to the next level. New signature dishes celebrate a wide breadth of Asian influences, tapping into the authentic flavor profiles of Singapore and Malaysia, with standouts like Crispy Snapper in the Sand, or the incredible introduction of in-house made hand-pulled noodles.

What's more, traditional sushi dining has been turned on its head: sharing is encouraged, a sensational omakase is offered, and even an entirely separate kitchen to afford sushi masters the proper space to serve up inventive plates of tuna sashimi with parmesan.

The "wow factor" begins long before the dishes arrive however with grandiose Buddhas, a stunning 24-handed Quan Yin statuette, multiple printed screens and a central koi pond.

The massive space, which seats more than 300 guests, also includes two private sky boxes, the Ink Bar lounge, an array of psychedelic projections and innumerable one-of-a-kind touches that make this far more than just a restaurant; this is the TAO Group after all.
