As we approached the front (and only) door, there were 4 cement steps down, no railing. We asked where the handicapped entrance was: THERE ISN'T ONE! I was with an elderly woman with a walker, she braved the steps slowly and carefully. We made it....More

This is a small restaurant with a ton of charm. Wonderful jazz music, delicious food (you must try their Italian egg rolls), and friendly service. I would recommend reserving your seats in advance.

Located across the street from iconic Al Forno, Vanity goes in a completely different direction. On the Friday night we visited it was part restaurant, part bar, part club. The crowd was definitely on the younger side but not college young. The dining area is...More
