This week’s fashionplate is a much overdue dinnertime visit to Bowery hotspot- Vandal. I’ve been a bunch for drinks and the club but have been meaning to try the food. I finally got the chance to get there for dinner and it definitely lived up to the hype. I decided to rock our brand new F/W16 Ellie Henley bodysuit for the perfect dinner to drinks to dancing outfit. My dining companion and me were seated pretty promptly in this huge restaurant and club that formerly housed The General and Finale. I love the flowershop entrance and all the great street art. I tried the Sergeant Bell Pepper cocktail which had a great hint of spice and I also had the Lost & Found. We were starving and split a ton of things. The knish reuben was amazing who doesn’t like meat, cheese, potato and thousand island dressing in one neat little package? The hot pretzel tartare was surprisingly tasty and flavorful. The red snapper tostadas rounded out our small plates with a slightly more health conscious app. People love the johnnycakes but we thought they were just ok, would probably not get them again, not as special as the remainder of the items we ordered. The wild mushroom pizza was amazing, orgasm in my mouth, can eat this once a week good. We went with one main, the branzino which was also delish. We probably over ordered by one or two items but yolo. We rounded out the meal with something sweet the smores which you can see got me all kinds of googly eyed.
All in all a great meal, definitely an all night spot from drinks to dinner and then late night dancing. The crowd was mostly young working professionals and downtown scensters with some tourists thrown in. This is definitely a spot to take a fashion risk and try something new. See how I styled my bodysuit below for this fashionplate.
