TAO Downtown

Tao Downtown

TAO downtown 369 West 16th Street, ( corner of 9 Ave ) at Marotime Hotel, NYC

TAO Downtown opened one month ago inside the Maritime Hotel across the street from Buddakan in Meatpacking District. Buddakan has been around for quite long time as a giant Asian fusion venue. TAO is also known as the same so…. hehehe (^_^) we will see how they are going to compete with each other. If you are expecting any out of town guests, then you should take them to TAO for dinner or just cocktails. Also the place is great place to have a birthday dinner this year when it is still new & hot. The venue is impressive and entertaining. They have one main dining room and two lounge areas. I like the open lounge area in front of the sleeping Buddha statue better than the back room bar area because you can enjoy the view of the whole venue. They have walk-in table service so you don’t need to make reservation, while enjoying the full food menu. The whole venue will seat up to 400!!! TAO group is ready to make ($_$) chin-chin-chin

Ps- You MUST order Miso Glazed sea bass from appetizer!!! YUM
