The Rag Trader sort of looks like it belongs in Vegas, not the Garment District. It has a very large bar area in the front and a dining room in the back (with additional seating up a flight of stairs), and there’s a full dinner menu with stuff like burrata, octopus, and steak. The big tables up front are perfect for groups, and there's a crowd here most nights.
