The Stanton Social is located in the Lower East Side of Mahattan. On a Friday night, right before 6pm, we sat ourselves at the bar upstairs from the main restaurant without a problem. A few minutes later, the place was packed. We were dripping in the definitive Mahattan Friday night experience as it was oozing out of every inch of this place.
