$20 for $40 Worth of Contemporary Cuisine

Dressed to the nines for a night at this throwback speakeasy, guests swill cocktails such as the scotch-whiskey Penicillin ($12) and dine on contemporary dishes such as the bourbon-brined Porky Primo roasted loin ($18) or the cast-iron blacked Sinister salmon ($18). Dinner is served on Tuesday–Saturday; see the full menu.

Vanity

Unknowing passersby often overlook the inconspicuous entrance to Vanity due to its clever—albeit anachronistic—disguise as a telephone booth. A tribute to the profusion of speakeasy clubs that popped up in the Prohibition era, Vanity decorates its posh interior with black-and-white photos, vintage-inspired décor, and coat racks that look suspiciously like undercover cops.

However backwards-looking the décor, the menu reflects ultra-contemporary tastes with its mix of New American and Italian flavors. A selection of starters—aptly named "temptations"—include Italian eggrolls stuffed with shaved cold cuts, and "Vanity plates" include such colorful dishes as the Double Cross Delmonico rib-eye steak. Like any respectable speakeasy, Vanity features a lengthy drink menu with elderflower-flavored cocktails, sugar-rimmed martinis, and gin and tonics garnished with fresh eviction notices.

Customer Reviews

Host and waitress were very nice. Food was good. I may go again.

the evening started out slowly. i wondered about the bartender when a simple manhattan cocktail arrived without a cherry. but that was the only small snafu. the food was very very good. and the presentation wonderful. we enjoyed a warm olive and feta appetizer that was tremendous and our entrees were excellent: my pork loin and her salmon. the service was good without being overbearing. we'll definitely come again.
