In those days, NYC's brasserie culture was in desperate need of a shake-up and The Standard, High Line was the perfect spot to reinterpret a classic. Many years, cocktails and parties later, The Standard Grill, led by Executive Chef, Paul Hargrove, remains a fixture of the downtown dining scene. Unbound by rules and conventions, The Standard Grill has the familiar feel of a neighborhood bistro-remixed with The Standard's buzzy, international sensibility.

Defined by bold flavors, the finest ingredients and an unmistakable New York attitude, The Standard Grill pioneers New American cuisine wherever it lands.
