They are popping up all over the country but, here are 10 themed restaurants in NYC. There are many places where you can go to not only get a good meal, but an experience as well. Themed restaurants come in all shapes and sizes.
- Ninja New York. This Japanese theme restaurant is built to look like a Ninja castle. The owners would like to transport you to a Ninja castle during the feudal days. The whole restaurant is laid out like a maze with contraptions set up throughout to trick the patrons eyes into believing they are seeing things.
- Vynl. Decorated with vynl records and disco balls this is a fun diner for the whole family. With typical home cooking diner fair, the menus are record labels, and the bathrooms are even themed. You can use the restroom with Elvis. Dolly Parton, Nelly, or even Cher.
- Park Avenue Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn. This interesting restaurant changes is decor and menu for each season. If you miss a season you will have to wait for that time of year to come around again before you can try it, because when the seasons change so does Park Avenue.
- Mars 2112. If you feel like spending an evening on a different planet, this is the place to go. There is even a three story crystal tree with a glass canopy.
