A basement vault in the old New York Realty bank converted into a fine-dining restaurant and bar.

Riviera Sundays at Lavo Restaurant

Submitted By: Nina Ki
Modeled after the sensibilities of the Italian Riviera in the 1950s (where movie stars, rockstars, and musicians hobnobbed in fancy, trendy restaurants), Riviera Sundays is designed not only to entertain, but also to leave you with a “‘magical’ memory and experience.” Magicians, ballerinas, and stilt-walkers make an appearance even before the food starts, and after desserts come DJs and dancing. Each Sunday hosts a different theme, and dancing on a table is not only allowed, but encouraged.
