Vago's One-Year Anniversary Party
On Tuesday night, Victoria Guan and Tony Rustja celebrated the one-year anniversary of their Midtown restaurant ‘Vago’, whose name means ‘beauty’ in Old Latin. The restaurant serves a variety of Mediterranean-inspired dishes, and the menu is divided into classic meat, seafood, and pasta entrees.
Guests at the anniversary party tried a variety of the restaurant’s best dishes, including lamb meatballs, smoked salmon topped with goat cheese and caviar, crab-stuffed mushrooms, oysters rockefeller, a creamy truffle risotto served out of a giant wheel of cheese, and, to top it all off, tiramisu martinis.
The flavors were exquisite, the presentation was refined and luxurious, and the service was impeccable. Guan and Rustja’s passion for beauty and excellence shone through every dish, and guests enjoyed a lovely and lively evening at a beautiful location.
Elements of rustic Italian comfort paired with a sleek and modern sophistication make Vago a cool and comfy spot for New Yorkers of all ages. Bob and Lauren, two of Vago’s first and most devoted customers, praised the restaurant for its quality, service, and location. “It’s a great neighborhood restaurant,” said Lauren. “She (Victoria Guan) wants to make you happy. They have great service and great brunch.” When the restaurant opened last year, the couple was happy to find Vago to be the trusted, local spot they had been waiting for. “And they make a great martini,” added Bob, whose endorsement on the subject is not lightly given.
Vago is open for brunch, lunch, and dinner every day. It’s easy to find, and certainly worth a trip. Check them out at 509 3rd Ave and get a preview of their menu here
