NYC is a wonderfully strange place, filled with strange people, strange museums, and — best of all — strange restaurants.

While the Big Apple is famous for its fine dining, its unusual dining is even better.

Here’s a list of the most unique restaurants in New York, brought to you by Manhattan luxury apartment broker Platinum Properties.


1. Ninja New York25 Hudson Street

Get Japanese food served to you by “real” ninjas—who are also trained to jump out and surprise you when you least expect it.
Come here for dinner and a show, where your scared reactions are the main entertainment.

2. The Jekyll and Hyde Club216 West 44th Street

The Jekyll and Hyde Club turns dining into a fantastically fearful experience, with spooky decor and creepy costumed characters mingling with guests as they eat.

3. Camaje Bistro & Lounge85 MacDougal Street

Camaje hosts regular “Dinners in the Dark,” where they blindfold you to enjoy a unique dining experience with your other four senses.
If you love trying different foods, reserve a spot now.

4. Toloache Thompson205 Thompson Street

While Chef Julian Medina’s Greenwich Village outpost isn’t at all unusual, one of its menu items is: Chapulines, Oaxacan-style dried grasshopper tacos.
If you’re feeling adventurous, this is the dish to order. If not, the restaurant has many other delicious options.

5. Trailer Park Lounge271 West 23rd Street

Their delightfully kitschy decor and delicious “backyard picnic” food will take you right out of New York City.
Come for the margaritas and awesome atmosphere.

6. Ellen’s Stardust Diner1650 Broadway

Known as the “Home of the Singing Waitstaff,” Ellen’s Stardust Diner is the perfect spot to enjoy a pre-Broadway dinner.
You’ll love seeing your server wow the restaurant with their amazing voice only seconds after they took your order.
