In a funky part of the East Village, this place rocks! Unpretentious but totally fun. Great service, too! We did the 12 course tasting menu (there's a 6 course also...fewer choices, larger portions). We expected clever molecular gastronomy, which we got. What we did not...More

We had a wonderful dinner date here a week ago, and it was a memorable experience. As other chefs have entered the world of more experimental/molecular gastronomy, it may not see so new - but to know he was one of the 1st chefs doing...More

We went to WD50 years ago and it WAS amazing. This time was far from amazing. It felt as if everyone had left the kitchen. The service was great and the food was consistently average. However, at $155 for a tasting menu average is not...More

First off, I am not a hipster. I am a bit of a foodie though as I do like my meals. I heard this place was closing so I made it a priority. It is pricey no doubt, $650 for two tax and tip out...More

For the tasting menu, there is not a single dish that I could rave or challenged. The waiters some how think that they are all Ferran or descendants of Paul Bocuse.

I loved this restaurant - the food and service were impeccable. I now find myself comparing other restaurants to it - and it always wins. The tasting menu with accompanying wines was faultless.

Anticipation for dinner at WD 50 was high on my list for my recent travel to NYC. The unique experience this restaurant is known for, both word of mouth and via "Unique Eats" led me to book a table there this past Friday night. The...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
