THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Vinyl Restaurant Review

: With its stainless steel walls and chrome galore, Vinyl is as sleek as its name. Located in a historic dining car, the retro restaurant has become a neighborhood landmark in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine area. Owners Roula David and Michael Spalding modernized the diner with wall art from New Orleans, canary yellow coloring and vinyl artwork to go with the original glass paneling and chrome. In the Kirei Room, check out the tabletops made from reconstituted African grass. A hip and innovative menu gives plenty of choices. Try the gourmet mini burgers---Kobe beef with sweet aïoli and lobster in sambal aïoli served on baby brioche buns, or the Deconstructed Tuna Casserole, a nod to the 1950s classic with cooked-to-order tuna resting on flat noodles in creamy béchamel. Much of the food is made for sharing---it comes on sticks, TV dinner trays or on tapas-style plates. Guava-flavored mojitos are thirst quenchers with a kick. Or try the world juices, flavored waters and teas.
