ACL Endorses | Macao Trading Co.

Anyone that has tried to sneak off the island through the Holland tunnel will tell you, timing is everything in New York City. Same thing goes for new restaurants. You have to get there before the crush of humanity does, or you are in a word, fucked. The best possible time to nab an easy reservation is a holiday weekend, when Manhattan is at half capacity. So last night I took the opportunity to hit the new restaurant Macao Trading Co. If you are unfamiliar, Macao was for many years a Portuguese colony off the coast of mainland China, which helps explain the menu at the new TriBeCa spot. It is also important to point out that MTC is the second undertaking from the team behind Employees Only, has an excellent drink list (said drinks can be pricey) and is fully ACL endorsed.

Thanks to Urban Daddy for the tip and the images.

    oh no! I’m from Macao, I’am wondering the marble floor from the 1st picture is imported from Portugal. As far as I know only Portuguese could make this kind of marble floor.

    Not sure about the floors. I will inquire next time I am there. Do you live in NYC? You should eat there and give us your feedback on how good / authentic it is.
