Tao is a massive spot in Chelsea that feels like a Vegas nightclub inside an airplane hangar. The high-ceilinged space has giant Buddha statues, couches overlooking a sunken dining room, and a club in the back where you may see someone who’s performing at MSG this weekend. The food - ranging from sushi to dim sum, lobster pad thai, and sweet and sour pork - is better than the food at most club-restaurants, but it’s also really, really expensive.
