wd~50 — New York City (3/2013)



I had been to wd~50 several years ago.  It was in the same location on Clinton St., but the format was different.  Wylie Dufresne (the “wd” in the name) continues to be a notable presence in New York, and his food creations incorporate molecular gastronomy techniques, so I decided I had to go back some time.  It’s a Michelin one-star restaurant.  OpenTable.com does provide a way to make reservations, but it was difficult to secure a table for one (while it would have booked a table for two), so I decided to call and was successful in making a reservation.

 The diner has two options: the Tasting Menu and the Vault Menu.  The Tasting menu is the current selection of dishes offered by the chef of about 13 items.  The Vault is a shorter selection of favorite dishes from the past 10 years.  I decided to go with the full Tasting Menu. They ask for, and will accommodate allergies and food preferences, but I decided to leave the menu as is.
