The space features cushy, curvy banquette, huge bar along with artwork and vinyl records lining the walls. The name stands for Vintage New York Lifestyle. Cocktails include concoctions like the Banana Boat with Cacao Nib Avua Amburana & Banana Chip Infused Falernum; and Tighty Whities made Shiso Infused Brooklyn Gin, Green Chartreusse, Yuzu & Toasted Sesame. The menu offers a Waldorf Salad, Chicken Kiev, Deviled Egg and a bone/in Veal Milanese.
