Fine Dining Cafeteria Style

I originally checked out Vapiano Restaurant because my brother told me about it.  My first thought when I walked in the door and they handed me a card (what they call a chip card) was "college".  You use the card to order all of your food, drinks, dessert, ...moreetc.  That's exactly whatI did in my college cafeteria years, swipe everything I wanted.  But, I was surprised at my overall experience.  The food was amazing and I absolutely loved watching my food be cooked right in front of me.  Awesome!  I've been there 4 times within the last 4 months, so I guess you can say I'm a fan.  I put together 2 list that I hope are helpful when you have your first Vapiano experience.   Things to Do: 1.  Find a table before ordering - the last thing you want to do is walk around with your food and no table to sit at. 2.  Make your menu selection before you're in front of the chef/cook - you don't want to be the one that holds up the line behind you. 3.  Ask the chef to add your favorites to the dish - a little garlic, red pepper or fresh pepper won't hurt. 4.  Try different pasta - the pasta is made fresh and they have a great variety.  You won't be disappointed. Don't: 1.  Don't leave your table unattended - it's important to clam your territory, especially on a Friday or Saturday night.  This restaurant gets crowded at night, so your group better leave a scarf, book or something to claim your table before everyone gets up to place their orders. 2.  Don't take all of your friend's cards to the bar to order drinks - by the time you get to the bar you never remember which card belongs to each friend.  The cards are identical. 3.  Don't leave your food behind if you're full - they have the cutest to-go-dishes and they are perfect to re-use.  Just ask the wait staff walking around for a to-go-box/dish. The only reason they don't get a perfect score from me is because I hate waiting in line and on Friday and Saturday nights you will wait just a bit.  Other than that it's the perfect spot for girls night out or a date.  Have fun and enjoy the food.  It's Pasta Time at Vapiano's!   Check out my sneak peak Video into my Vapiano experience:  http://youtu.be/SBiG5g2TnXMview less

The Cloister Cafe
Yoseph K. rated

Fittingly, the decor inside Cloister matches what you would expect to see at a church. The pleasantly sacrilegious ambiance for smoking hookah and drinking fine wine adds to your inebriating experience. Cloister is a term ingrained in the Catholic church, if you're curious ...moreregarding it's meaning, check out Wikipedia. I'm here to preach, not to teach. The pride and joy of CC though is the outdoor garden. When the weather is warm and the vineyard has grape leaves draping over slivers of sunlight, you forget that you're still in New York. The ambiance is amazing and the patrons can be very pleasant, even striking up a conversation with your table. The pricing is often ridiculous, and sometimes when our lovely waitress brings us "shots on the house" I swear we've had them show up on our bill. This adds to the charm albeit stings the first two times you see the bill. It's very European how they handle their business, complete with real Russian waitresses! So yea, Catholic stain glass, Mediterranean garden, New American cuisine, Turkish Hookah and Russian staff. It's not ideal, in fact it's all over the place in terms of brand identity. Given that I'm a regular, they treat me a little better than a first timer (My real rating for this spot would be a 4 by the way, but I want to counterbalance the bad ratings) On a wintery night, I came here with a friend, we were both sick and we asked them to make us honey mulled wine, they did it. They charged us whatever they wanted because it's not a standard menu item, but the fact remains, they do care about their regulars. Like many places in NY, you have to know when to come and when to avoid this spot. Some tips if you want to have a good time: - Come during warmer weather and sit in the garden. - Start drinking here, continue at your club/lounge. Not the other way around. - Order a pitcher (or 2) of Sangria rather than drinks for groups smaller than 4 - Order Hookah with a mix, always keep one part leafy (Mint, Jasmine) with one part smooth (Vanilla, Apple, Coffee). - Practice self control when ordering shots. If you follow these steps, you'll have a good timeview less
