Offering an unrivaled social experience to Financial District workers and this venue has become a favorite choice for after-work dining and drinks in the city over the past three years.

The restaurant and bar concept came from the same team behind Church Street’s Boutique Bar and focuses on house-made ingredients, speciality cocktail mixes and a gourmet menu of tempting, shareable dishes.

The decor here is modern and has a friendly feel with wrought-iron detailing, wood floors and comfortable padded benches.

With respected Chef Brent Maxwell at its helm, clientele at East Thirty-Six can enjoy a popular Lunch Menu which includes dishes such as Burrata, beef Carpaccio  and chicken liver Parfait.

The Dinner Menu features squid, mussels and fresh scallops with meat dishes including lamb burger, beef shortrib with matchstick potatoes, and Berkshire pork belly.
