NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: WD-50 Restaurant in New York City's vibrant Lower East Side neighborhood is a unique culinary delight. The 65 seat Manhattan eatery pushes the limits of modern American cuisine with wildly inventive dishes that are as tantalizing as they are unconventional.

Why We Dine: WD-50 NYC is avant-garde cuisine at its finest. Housed inside a former Lower East Side bodega, WD-50 offers guests a playfully sophisticated dining experience.

  • Delightful Decor: The understated dining room at WD-50 Restaurant doesn't overpower chef Wylie Dufresne's eccentric cuisine. Instead, the Lower East Side eatery's modern furnishings and bright color scheme provide the perfect setting to enjoy WD-50 NYC's innovative culinary creations.
  • Fantastic Fare: The chefs at WD-50 Restaurant successfully test the limits of conventional American cuisine with innovative culinary techniques and cutting-edge creations like scrambled egg ravioli and licorice custard served with sake sorbet. These unlikely combinations have garnered critical acclaim for WD-50 NYC and chef Wylie Dufresne , as well as earned the restaurant and chef multiple nominations from the esteemed James Beard Foundation.
  • Splendid Spirits: The cocktails at WD-50 Restaurant are as creative and inspired as the cuisine. The Lower East Side restaurant's full bar boasts an excellent selection of classic favorites like gin, rum, and sherry, as well as an impressive array of exclusive spirits such as kumquat bourbon and pine liquor.

Inside Knowledge: The restaurant's name, WD-50, is a clever play on chef Wylie Dufresne's initials and the restaurant's Lower East Side Manhattan street address.

We Recommend:

  • Eggs Benedict: Order this popular dish off the appetizer menu at WD-50 Restaurant for a wonderfully weird take on an old breakfast standby. Eggs Benedict a la wd-50 is served as a small upright column of egg yolk supporting a crispy chip of Canadian bacon next to a cube of deep-fried hollandaise sauce encrusted with English muffin crumbs. You have to see it (and taste it) to believe it!
  • Damson in Distress: The Damson in Distress is one of our favorites from the menu of cleverly-named cocktails at WD-50. This refreshing combination of Damson gin, pine liquor from the Swiss Alps, and clarified pear juice is a sweet and floral treat that's fun to order.
