    The basement is a much swankier spot than upstairs. Go straight for the bar downstairs and loosen up with the dj until you're ready for the quiet dining experience on the top floor.

    A gem in tribeca. Sit at the bar and check out the extensive drink menu. The ginger flynn is divine but talk onto your bartenders; they'd be happy to make you something special right on the spot!

    This Southeast Asian-themed bar and restaurant from the Employees Only team serves a brisket and short rib burger, a pork chop sandwich, and bacon and egg look funn noodles. Open till 3:30 AM.

    The first and last European trading outpost in East Asia, Macao was controlled by the Portuguese for over 500 years. Now, its a Tribeca gem. (Try the Drunken Dragon Milk cocktail...)

    "Macao’s menu proffers Chinese grub with a Portuguese twist: caldo verde meatballs, Macanese chili lobster tail, and malasadas (that’s Portuguese for donuts) with creme anglaise."
  • Zeba S.
    Great ambience& food! Perfect for night out with friends. Do visit their lounge downstairs. Cocktails are worth trying :)

    A perfect 3 in 1 date spot: food, cocktails and lounge to dance. Cuisine is very tasty, pricy but worth it. You will score points with your gal on the decor alone. Cocktails on point as well.

    Malasadas with creme anglaise, fried whole bass, Hakka noodles and steamed chicken and pork belly dumplings!
  • Rajesh M.
    For two people, eating healthy try the Chicken & Pork Belly Dumplings Steamed, Scallop & Chive Dumplings Fried to start and Steamed Fish, Eggplant and Chinese Greens to share for main course

    Awesome vibe and decor, food is decent take on modern Chinese food. The cocktails though are the reason you should come - the Drunken Dragon Milk is one of my favorite in the city

    Burlesque restaurant & lounge by day, eclectic club by night. The southeast Asian tapas are exquisite, and the drinks unique, exotic, and exciting.

    I couldn't decide on a drink from the extensive menu, so the bartender whipped me up a great cocktail I'd never had before. Service was great. Only downside was that the barstools don't have backs.

    Was recently in new York a few weeks walked the streets and went to the Macau restaurant Trading, where Asian cuisine and of itself, this cuisine is varied, but everything here was top notch.

    Drinks here are typically more flavor than punch, but was quite happy with "Really." Yes, it's really called Really (cognac, egg white)! Ivan was also a very wonderfully attentive bartender/host.

    NY. This Portuguese/ Chinese fusion restaurant offers an exciting blend of exotic dishes that make dining at Macao a unique experience. Try the mushroom and truffle croquettes appetizer to start.

    The Ants Climbing the Tree noodle dish is one of the best noodle dishes I've had anywhere. And I'm a noodle freak. Don't worry, no actual ants, just minced pork and spicy glass noodles.

    If in TriBeCa and looking for a unique meal - Asian inspired food w/ cool vibe than MCT is the place. Remember- place is small so call for a resi & basement bar is only open mid week/weekends

    Grab some glass noodles, something with hoisin, and a Drunken Dragon’s Milk cocktail. Where I go when I want to be mentally transported to 20th Century Portuguese-influenced red light district Macao.

    The menu here is nearly as exotic as the surroundings. Décor from flea markets around the world, a sexy opium cabinet and a sultry downstairs Oriental lounge set the bar high.

    The No Mames cocktail has tequila & honey liquor & has notes of citrus. The Ciao Rizo is a unique drink that has chipotle-flavored tequila, lime, lemongrass syrup & cilantro.

    Get the pork bun for sure. The dr. funk is good, but has a somewhat strong fennel taste. The dragon's milk is tasty; basically a pina colada with vodka. The downstairs has loud house music bumping.

    African chicken, stellar tho overpriced dumpling -- this is better than prosperity and Chinatown I'll give me that. Dragons milk is floral and wholesome.
