Expert review of The Standard Grill

In a neighborhood known for its scene, this restaurant is about the food.

Despite being connected to the super hip Standard Hotel, this restaurant is a destination in its own right for both visitors and well-heeled New Yorkers. I love the unpretentious menu and the fact that you can get a good meal whether it’s an early morning breakfast, business lunch or festive late night dinner.

Food and drink: 

This isn’t a place for someone who is on a strict diet. The menu epitomizes a recent New York penchant for comfort food done really well, with country pate, skillets of delicious potatoes with mayonnaise and a hearty roast chicken for two - though there are some lighter plates of fish like an excellent trout.

Ambience: 

If you are looking for somewhere cozy or intimate this isn’t it. The front room seats 100 and the acoustics are pure New York at rush hour.

Service: 

Unfortunately the service here is not the restaurant’s selling point. Servers seem overwhelmed and it’s not unusual to get part of your order wrong, or to be forgotten altogether.

Location: 

The restaurant sits under the new Highline and in the center of the Meatpacking neighborhood.

Price advice: 

Main courses start from US$15 to US$32.50, a typical range for a restaurant of this type.

Tables to book: 

Don’t let them seat you all the way in the back - it’s the most noisy part of the restaurant and the staff tend to forget your table.
