Have you heard of the Tango Room? It opened quietly opened last year in the former FT33 space and brings us a tiny, high end, art-focused steakhouse that almost feels like a private club!
Updated March 2022
Tango Room is the personal creation of Tim Headington, owner of The Joule, Commissary, CBD Provisions and more. With room for only 60 people, it’s a dark, glamorous and classic steakhouse that also serves pasta, seafood and upscale bar bites. The team aimed to take the traditional steakhouse and add their personal twist of thoughtfulness and elevation, creating one of the fanciest and most illusive restaurants in town!
FINE DINING MENU
Start with a martini and lobster corn dogs, duck wings or steak tartare. For seafood, there’s caviar, oysters and shrimp cocktail to name a few. There are two pastas: a bolognese and frutti di mare, and then for your meats, choose between five cuts of steak or a pork chop. Top with seared foie gras, Stilton butter, bordelaise or other toppings, and make sure to try some sides too. If you’re really hungry or with a group, go for the large format Peking duck or red snapper!
THE DINING ROOM
Find the restaurant off of Hi Line near recently opened Carbone. There’s no sign, but the valet should help point you to the sleek and unassuming entrance. Inside, a waiting room with a diamond dusted Andy Warhol greets you before you walk into a glitzy, windowless room of deep red booths and mid century artwork. There’s even a book you can look through to learn more about the surrounding art.
PLAN YOUR VISIT
You must make reservations to visit Tango Room, given the limited seating. It can be tough going in the moment unless it's really early or late. It’s open Tuesday-Thursday from 5-10 PM and until 11 PM over the weekend.
Ultimately, Tango Room is a very high end experience, but at the same time low key, so it is a great place to save for an intimate special occasion or when you’re really looking to impress someone!
