About Tao:
Once a balconied movie theatre, Tao is the kind of NY Restaurant that has a lot to offer diners even before they take a single bite. The décor may make you feel a bit like you’re dining in a temple, but once you taste the food, it seems appropriate. 

The Sunday Dim Sum Brunch isn’t just a menu highlight; it’s a full-on NYC highlight. Enjoy a fabulous cocktail as you sample the Lobster and Shrimp Rolls with Sweet Miso and Ho Fun Noodle Stuffed with Shrimp and Lobster – both of which are diner favorites. This NY Restaurant has 1 of the best brunches in the City.

As for lunch and dinner, Tao puts its own twist on Asian-inspired fine Dining in NYC. The classics you know and love are presented in new ways that make them special and memorable. Outstanding examples include the Wasabi Crusted Filet Mignon with Tempura of Onion Rings, the Imperial Wagyu Beef Cooked in a Ginger Scallion Broth with Wasabi Dipping Sauce, and the Typhoon Lobster with Fingerling Potatoes and Spicy Stir Fry. 

Some argue the menu is a little on the large side for such an elegant establishment, but every single one of the delicious offerings deserves its place on Tao’s menu. Full of Eastern promise and with an unforgettable Asian ambiance, you owe it to yourself to check out Tao. Keep in mind that Tao is one of the most popular NY Restaurants, so if you’re determined to dine here then it is a good idea to reserve your table in advance of your visit. 

The fabulous food scene is one of the best parts about a stay in NYC. Our Times Square hotel is located near many top dining spots, and Hotel Mela’s concierge is available to make suggestions and help with recommendations.
