Which vnyl?

Vnyl sounds like a fun place to go in NYC -- any advice in choosing between the Chelsea and the Hell's kitchen locations, besides that fact that the Chelsea one is very close to Donut Pub?

    It's spelled Vynyl, in case you are searching. It's nothing special, but a solid, well-priced decent place to eat, vast menu. Fine place to go after a matinee show on Broadway. Good for kids. Really just a diner at the end of the day.

      Actually, we're both wrong -- it's Vynl.

        spell it however you'd like and let it end there. there's as much reason to go to Vynl as there is Hard Rock Cafe.

            Could you explain what's "yuck!" about it?

              It's just a little local spot. They serve arguably too many kinds of food and accordingly do an ok job with everything Certainly not a destination bar or restaurant but it's an acceptable place to meet for a drink/snack.

                Thanks. That's more helpful than "yuck!"

                Sorry, I should have elaborated. The food is not inedible, but is at best ordinary and generally inferior to a typical diner. The first time I tried it I had some shrimp wontons that were tasty, and a second course I can't recall but I think it was also decent, but when I went a second time the wontons were poor, and the meatloaf was completely tasteless. I really think they just don't care if their food is any good or not.

              I find this place to be over-priced. I am not that into the food there and for the price would rather go somewhere else.

          I had the worse Caesar salad here in my life. The steak (ordered med-well) was so bloody it turned my salad dressing pink! I won't be returning anytime soon.
