Vinyl (Hell’s Kitchen)
While I’m sure a majority of the people that head to Vinyl aren’t doing so in search of great food, despite the menu changes that happened a couple years ago the food is still pretty tasty. The atmosphere is the real reason to stop in- and DON’T leave without using the bathroom. Each location bedazzles decks out each individual bathroom as a different music celebrity. I do miss the Beyonce bathroom that was a part of the old UES location…I went a couple months ago to meet up with a friend from out of town. And of course, the nacho blog forced me to narrow down my food choice real quick.
Anyways- on to the AVOCADO RATINGS! (they are new!)
Topping Quality- 7 (pretty typical- they do give a nice dollop of guac tho!)
Portion Size- 8 (great as an appetizer for 4…of course I made it my meal.)
Service- 6 (the waiters get distracted by the music videos on the wall and caught up in flirting with each other. They are nice tho…and true to Hell’s Kitchen fashion almost always male.)
Convenience (chip integrity)- 7 NEW CATEGORY! Added this one since some places give chips that just don’t hold up- luckily Vinyl’s do pretty well.
Atmosphere- 10. (I mean…this is the reason people come.)
AVERAGE AVOCADO RATING- 7.7 out of 10
not too shabby Vinyl.
