    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.

    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...)

    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.

    Great food, amazing service, special late night menu. Arrive early to get a few drinks at the bar, tell mixologists ur preference of flavors and they will wip something up just for u!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    "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."

    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

    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.

    Entrees and drinks are great to begin with, but save room to share (with at least 1 or 2) the Portuguese style donuts! Insane!

    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.
