About Short Stories

Our Mission

At Short Stories in New York City, our mission is to offer an extraordinary dining experience that marries comfort with a touch of elegance. We meticulously craft each dish to ensure our patrons savor every bite, fostering a sense of warmth and familiarity. Our new menu is not just about exquisite flavors; it’s about creating a home away from home where every meal is a story worth telling.”

Where Hospitality & Entertainment combine

Our Philosophy

Short Stories brings an elevated yet approachable neighborhood bistro to the Bowery, which transforms into an intimate but lively lounge in the evening.

“We were very thoughtful about our philosophy on what we wanted the new version of Short Stories to be. Staying true to the nightlife strengths but elevating the other parts of the business, we think we’ve struck the right balance between culinary, hospitality and entertainment.”
