I've been wanting to try Wylie's restaurant for a while but am broke, so when a friend told me that you can get any 2 courses for $25 at the bar, I was ecstatic. Don't get me wrong, it's still pricey as the portions are really tiny but it's a great way to feel like you're ballin on a budget. Everything was wonderfully prepared- we got primarily meat dishes and the quality of the meat was top notch. The preparation was on point. The flavors were delicious but subtle. That being said, nothing really blew my mind and none of our 5 dishes really showcased his use of molecular gastronomy (maybe our fault?) We ordered: -duck breast -rabbit leg -beef tongue -egg drop soup with uni -wagyu flatiron steak

It's hard to argue that Wylie Dufresne is not one of the most interesting modern day American chefs, cooking up wondrous feats of science fiction style food. Utilizing molecular gastronomy in most of his a dishes, a technique that creates unusual textures for flavors we don't normally associate with. Such as Egg Yolk-Mashed Potato Ravioli with Cucumber and Caviar or a Bloodless Sausage made entirely of vegetables yet undeniably tastes like meat. There are only two options for the menu, a large 12 course tasting menu or a smaller 6 course, both with the options of pairing. If you plan on spending money at a place like this, go big or go home. And get the pairing, you won't regret it. Bottom Line: One of the country's best chefs doing what he does best, make sure to go before it closes in September!

I recently went here to celebrate a special occasion and went all out with the 12 course tasting menu. In reading the menu online, I didn't catch just how inventive some of the courses would end up being - like the everything bagel (with the bagel really being made of ice cream) served with salmon threads and a crispy cream cheese. It really *did* taste like a bagel, yet none of the components are presented the way you'd expect them to be with the name of the dish, or even in the form remotely close to what you'd associate with them. I loved the way it messed with your mind. Our server was another story altogether but I'm trying to separate the two. Wine selection was nice - many options at varying price points, which I appreciated.

My meal at WD-50 is hands down the best meal I've ever had. I did the 12 course tasting menu with wine pairing and everything was incredible. In fact, I always tell people that the food made me giggle, it was so whimsical and interesting that it not only appealed to my palate but also to my funny bone. I also got to meet Wylie who was in the kitchen that night....I may have told him he is a rock star...because lets face it..he is!

We liked how the place was decorated. Service was ok, not best. Food and wine were ok, not really delicious. Some info portals tell about this rest as about a place for molecular gastronomy, but it's not at all, just regular fusion tasting menu place

Do you constantly change the telly? Do you skip to the next great song after only a minute or so? If you like to dabble in a little bit of everything that is awesome then wd~50 is for you, and if you don't then you should still try it! There is something fantastically simple about a tasting menu and this place doesn't disappoint. Every dish was expertly crafted and just the right size to give you a full taste but still left room for the next track on the playlist. If you brought your appetite or it is your first time here then I suggest you opt for the bigger tasting menu, otherwise the smaller one will suffice. Oh, and this goes without saying, yes on the wine pairing.

All thee who trust in Wylie shall be rewarded. Don't get caught in in all the molecular gastronomy nonsense- great food is great food, and wd-50 has great food. You may not know what it is, and it may look different than you think, but every plate that comes out of that kitchen is beautiful and tasty. It's not cheap, but it's an experience.

Went there with my girlfriend while visiting NYC (it was my birthday, I wanted something special). We had the big tasting menu, and although there are really interesting dishes and the cooks are technically virtuosos, the end result was not convincing. From the 12 dishes I really liked 2 or 3, enjoyed 3 or 4, and the others are just average. Good selection of wines though. The decoration is great but I did not liked the ambient. Different groups are seated very close to each other, there is no intimacy, music is loud, not the best way to enjoy that kind of food. I was seated with my girlfriend and in the same area there were almost only couples, at some point I felt like in some sort of speed dating event. Coming from Europe I guess I prefer more intimate restaurants. I now have been to 4 1-star michelin restaurants (and many others willing to get there) and this was by far the one I liked less.
