The Standard Grill: hottest restaurant near the High Line park

by Alexandra Forbes

Meltdown or no meltdown, New York always has a new restaurant du jour.

And this month it most definitely is The Standard Grill, at the Standard Hotel.

Opened less than a month ago, and already toughest resi to score - besides Ko, of course.

I loved the look of the place. Perfect for summer: tables outside, a bar with a nautical feel and a coat of glossy paint.

I was meeting a friend for a drink, so I didn't stay for dinner. Tried “the speakeasy”: rye, sugar, absinthe, lemon. A sazerac, in other words. Nice.

Also snacked on a delish steak tartare.

My friend Karin Dauch, the owner/author of this blog, actually had dinner there, and posted a full report here.

But what I also loved was getting a tour of the hotel itself. Very cool. And you heard it here first: they will open an AMAZING restaurant or lounge at the rooftop that's going to be sick. In-cre-di-ble setting, 360 views, super cool design (I've seen the work in progress). Here are photos of the High Line park from up there:

And the view of the city:
