Tao group opened its iconic dining experience on 92 Ninth Avenue, beneath the Maritime Hotel. “This isn’t just a ‘second location’ of TAO in New York City; it is the next iteration of our brand”, mentioned Partner Rich Wolf. The 22,000 square –foot restaurant and lounge seats up to 400 guests and offers two signature “Sky Box” dining possibilities found on the upper level overlooking the sprawling main dining room. The restaurant’s lounge area, titled the Ink Bar, is situated on the Eastern mezzanine offering guests TAO Downtown’s full menu as well. The new spot spans a larger scale of Asian inspirations, including Hunan and Szechuan-style cooking. Exclusive to TAO Downtown, diners who select Omakase at the sushi bar are able to relish off-the-menu hot and cold items created at the dedicated sushi kitchen.
