Sugar Dining Den and Social Club
Marketing maestro Brian Rosenberg’s Sugar Dining Den and Social Club, lauded as a "don't miss" destination by the New York Times has soldered its name to the art of fun fine dining. Chef Hok Chin calls on the skills he developed during his time at former Manhattan legend La Caravelle to concoct small, shareable plates according to playful themes. He fashions gourmet Pigs in a Blanket with Kobe beef and encourages guests to take responsibility for their meal with the mini cheeseburger bar—six sirloin sliders accompanied by DIY toppings. Sugar Dining Den honors its namesake with desserts, such as the waffle kebab à la mode buried in a heap of brûléed bananas and candied walnuts, and a legion of in-house poets that regularly pen sonnets to sugar cane.
As night falls, staff clears away tables and cutlery transforms into an international selection of top DJs. Diners can dance the night away on the neon blue- and pink-lit dance floor, or kick back with a glass of wine from Tuscany, Argentina, or Spain, or a phosphorescent cocktail, such as the asian pear citrus apple.

About Sugar Dining Den and Social Club
In 1997, Chef Hok Chin moved to New York City from Hong Kong, where he’d been in training with some of the city’s finest chefs since age 14. Though his culinary talents were already formidable, the ambitious young chef faced a hurdle he couldn’t simply spatula himself over: the English language. Undaunted, he headed back to work the humblest kitchen positions and scrabbled his way back to the top at establishments such as Tavern on the Green, The Mark Hotel, and most recently, La Caravelle. In 2010, the multinational gourmet teamed up with nightlife impresario Brian Rosenberg, and the duo’s new venture, Sugar Dining Den and Social Club, drove Joanne Starkey of the New York Times to rave, “The food is delicious—much better than it has to be—and the service is excellent.”
Something between a nightclub and a fine-dining establishment, Sugar immediately immerses its guests in a world of bright lights, pulsing beats, and an arrestingly modern architectural scheme that sets a decorative forest of tree branches beneath a looming vaulted ceiling. After a dinner of gourmet fusion cuisine, such as Pacific Rim skirt steak with green chili potatoes and hand-cut sweet potato fries with maple-chipotle barbecue sauce, the eating area transforms into a dance floor soundtracked by some of today’s most popular DJs. The cocktail list keeps the party rolling late into the night with charmingly titled offerings such as the Black and White Cookie and the Swedish Fish.
