Our Spying on The Standard NYC Reveals Their Restaurant
Occasionally, we find ourselves strolling through just the right parts of Manhattan at just the right times, and luckily for us and for The Standard's hype, things always seem to happen at the Meatpacking District hotel when we're around to snap them.
Case in point: We took a walk on a lovely evening and happened to roll by The Standard just as workers were removing the paper from the windows of the street-level restaurant, revealing tables already set and booths so round and so red that we started to drool at the thought of sinking our tushies into them. According to Eater, this is the setting for what will be a steakhouse from Dan Silverman, formerly of the trendy Midtown East eatery Lever House. From these first shots, however, we're getting less of a chophouse vibe from the space and more bistro; this is going to a booming brunch spot no matter what.
Set for "Spring 2009," which we are on the cusp of right now, the restaurant will be the first of other dining nooks to come at The Standard. Expect a biergarten underneath the High Line tracks, a possible smaller cafe tucked away, and a few bars and lounges (notably, the top-level lookout).
