    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 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.
  • Chris E.
    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

    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.

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

    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.

    Some of the best cocktails from some of the best bartenders in the city. Always a fun time here. Don't forget to check out the lounge downstairs too.

    Amazing service coupled with great food make Macao Trading a great place for a special group dinner. Be warned, the portions are small.

    "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."

    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

    Malasadas with creme anglaise, fried whole bass, Hakka noodles and steamed chicken and pork belly dumplings!

    Though the décor is show stopping, it’s bested by the cocktails–creamy, creative, and well-executed (not to mention oh-so-tasty). The same delicious drinks are served upstairs too. Read more

    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.

    All the cocktails are absolutely delicious. Bartenders can recommend based on flavor and base alcohol preferences. Food is also wonderful.

    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.

    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...)

    Try the Drunken Dragon's Milk - Cant get wrong w/ this asia-inspired #cocktail (green tea vodka, Thai basil , coconut milk etc)

    My recommendation is to share appetisers rather than ordering a main each. They are wonderful and reasonably priced.

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

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

    If you want to get on the bartenders' good graces order a shot of Fernet by the end of the night you've made a new host of friends.

    The Nick Nack is a ridiculously good Mezcal based cocktail. Sweet and spicy at the same time.

    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.
