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.

I can see people not finding the food here particularly good, but I can't see anyone saying that the food here is not interesting. This is definitely something everyone should try at least once.

The only strictly molecular gastronomy place in NYC. Some of their more impressive options are the rabbit wrapped in chicken skin and pretzel coated beer icecream finisher. It is expensive, but whenever I can afford it, I will be back to try the entire tasting menu. And as an important note, at the bar you can get any two dishes for $30, making it possible to try anything, without trying everything.

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.

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!

Good meal but very over hyped. Interesting use of flavors and ingredients but in the end, I just wasn't sold on the results. Decor was average and service was attentive. I sampled a few wines, all of which were quite good. All in all, if you are looking for an outside-the-box dining experience (and willing to shell out some cash) head on over to see what Wiley Dufresne has created. Otherwise, plenty of better options are out there for you.
