Temporarily closed.

Stephen Hanson's downtown precursor to Atlantic Grill (Upper East Side) and Ocean Grill (Upper West Side) is far more of a scene than either of its siblings. In a converted bank on Union Square, this space, formerly a restaurant called Metroplis, 420 seats strong, still offers jazz downstairs. In the dining room, it's no-nonsense fish, always impeccable. At the bar, it's cruising and hooking-up galore. Hanson also operates Ruby Foo's, Blue Fin, Dos Caminos and Isabella's.
