Popular since opening in 2005, Stanton Social knows the secret to Lower East Side popularity: Appeal to the transplanted A-listers without alienating the neighborhood’s scruffier long-timers. The posh first-floor dining room is a romance of dark wood with semicircular chocolate-suede banquettes, flickering votives, and cylindrical glass lamps suspended from a soaring ceiling; the upstairs lounge is a shrine to wine. Yet any hint of pretense vanishes once the food arrives. Chef-owner Chris Santos’s globe-spanning tapas menu is as quirky as it is nouveau. Some plates are delicate (tuna tartare in dainty phyllo; French-onion-soup dumplings); other choices are adamantly messy (Kobe-beef sliders; crunchy red-snapper tacos). The snack cakes for dessert include a bite-size version of a red velvet Twinkie; other options include warm donuts and a chocolate tasting.
