Tao's midtown location has long been a dark, colossal hotbed of throbbing beats, theatrical décor, and occasionally pan-Asian food served to its bedazzled customers. The new downtown bi-level space can seat 400 people, but that really means 600 or so if you can take the model-type clientele into consideration. So, what about the food? Well, the menu includes some new dishes like roasted chicken chow mein, with hand-pulled noodles made daily in house. There's also a separate sushi bar, murals with Chinese calligraphy, and a 40-foot staircase.
