An LES Monster from the Tao People

Average Reviews


Tao Group + Chris Santos + Shepard Fairey + that massive space on Bowery that used to be the General and Finale = the thing you’re going to hear about today. That’s Vandal, a palatial spot for eating and drinking lavishly, and dancing and whatever else. It’s got some big-dreaming names attached to it and it’s open now. Let’s see how it adds up… You’ll enter through an orchid-filled flower shop, continue through a brick tunnel and run into an enormous, break-dancing purple rabbit. Not one, but all of those things are true. The inside’s a labyrinth. It’s a bi-level maze of dining areas, catacombs and private rooms. And there’s street art everywhere. From seven “vandals” who are pretty well-known in that world. Shepard Fairey got dibs on the Secret Garden. Speaking of, there’s a Secret Garden. It’ll be the sort of ivy-covered and twinkle-lit place to be when it gets warmer. Under the ground is where the dancing happens. As ever. The food’s, well, all over the place. Peruvian ceviche, sticky pork dumplings, a two-pound whole lobsterDrinks come sweet, savory or barrel-aged. The La Palmitas, a Thai mezcal with lemon nectar and grapefruit beer, falls in the savory column. It’s a shockingly good column. But about that break-dancing rabbit
