A classic brasserie, The Standard is known today as much for its scene, as for its food. Set in the heart of the partying Meatpacking District, it gets a lot of fashionistas, and nightlife afficionados, which means a good-looking twenty-something and 30-something crowd fill the tufted leather booths here. That being said the grilled meats, chilled seafood platters, burgers, and brunch items are of a high quality, and it's pleasant to sit under The Standard's vaulted tile ceilings, and watch the crowds go by.
