In this week’s Café, we look at VIN, the newest addition to fine dining in the Theater District.
Don’t be intimidated by the dark-tinted windows or the “cool guy” atmosphere inside – a tribute to rich-colored wood and red-leather seating, with classic ‘60s and ‘70s movies playing over the stylish bar. It’s not only a place for an elegant meal before going to see a play, but also a relaxing get-away for lunch and dessert. VIN boasts an innovative menu, where a simple ham & cheese sandwich is elevated to haute cuisine, and where the gimmicky self-proclaimed “World’s Tiniest Desserts” actually work and make the final course of the meal a little bit more fun. – Chris Vogel
