Street food from exotic locales such as Peru, Vietnam and Barcelona converge at the new restaurant VANDAL, located in New York, NY and founded by TAO Group in collaboration with Rockwell Group.  The restaurant is a two-story bar and lounge, decorated with pieces by various street artists.

Chefs Chris Santos and Jonathan Kavourakis traveled to 14 different countries in preparation for the menu, in order to sample and select their favorite street food dishes to be featured in the restaurant.

Architecture was another aspect that was carefully thought out.  With private rooms, secret catacombs and various art installations, VANDALS is sure to leave its guests awestruck and full of amusement.  The entrance features an 11-foot tall rabbit that breakdances.  If that isn’t unexpected at a restaurant, then we don’t know what is.

With the help of UK-based artist HUSH and other well-known street artists, this restaurant, which is part art museum, part extraordinary dining experience, is a must see.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
