Tao is one of the hippest restaurants in NY. It’s pricey but the food is good. I like the interiors. I highly recommend this place if you need to take out of town guests to dinner. They have a prix fixe lunch if you’re on a budget.
I’m actually thinking of celebrating my birthday here. My plan is to get a group and use the private dining area at lunch so it’s just around $30 pp.
