TENDER PARTIES IT UP WITH AVOCADO FRIES!

Time’s Square the tourist central for New York, is now home to Tender, a fun party restaurant that is great for groups and a decadent, if not slightly cheesy, night out. This Upscale Midtown West restaurant in the showy Sanctuary Hotel serves American fare and Sushi with even the option of Omakase while waitresses playfully dance in between taking your orders.

The modelesque staff and dark leather banquets make Tender feel somewhere between a nightclub and a steakhouse destined for a night of gluttonous fun along to the top 40 house music Dj. The party really starts for dinner after 10pm.

The food is delicious and daring with healthy to decadent options suited for all with fabulous plating and an inventive collection of ingredients.

I would recommend Tender for a fun night out with friends after a show in Times Square. There is also an over-the-top bar room which would be great to impress fun-loving out-of-towners.

MUST TRY:

– Avocado Fries

– Tender Roll  and Sunset Roll

– Filet Mignon

– Garlic Spinach

Avocado fries with diced apple, basil essence and ranch dip was phenominal and so interesting! Tasted almost like tempura pumpkin. The creamy avocado was offset but the soft crunch of the batter. Really original dish. MUST TRY
