    This pub style restaurant features an exquisite inexpensive menu. The Pub Cheese Plate (comprised of purple cheese), and the special Pigs in a Blanket are musts. Save room for the Root Beer Pudding!

    This burger packs a lot of flavor. The creamy beer cheese is offset by the pickle and toasted bun. Don't skip the french onion soup rings; they go great on top of the patty. Leggi tutto

    Simply amazing. Texture, taste, colors, mixes. Disclaimer: WD50 is my fav restaurant in the whole world. Happy to see a cheaper and more accessible option. Congrats Wylie!

    Stiff drinks, purple cheese, and chicken liver toast. What a fun gastropub! I'd choose the chicken liver toast over the foie gras, and definitely get the quail. Desserts are interesting too.

    Don't miss the chicken liver toast w grapefruit marmalade. The rye pasta was novel, but not as good as the saffron spatzle w pork rib. And root beer pudding lived up to all the hype.

    Love the squid salad (fresh, chewy but tender ) the purple pub cheese is quite unique & rye pasta is tasty. Be aware of the small portion. Wooden decor , with hidden cubbies near the wall

    Everything was delicious! Bf and I got six plates: foie gras, pigs in a blanket, shepard's pie, jalepeno poppers, halibut and duck breast. I would highly recommend the foie gras, pie and duck nomnoms.

    Cheeseburger, $13 The man grinds his own beef, mixes it with shio kombu (salted kelp) to boost the umami factor, brushes his buns with dry-aged beef fat, and makes his own American-style cheese.

    amazing. clam chowder, rye pasta, and "pigs in a blanket" were fantastic, but our favorites were the desserts - peanut butter and jelly cake and a root beer float concoction. Cocktails spot on too!

    Very supportive of the $65 set menu at Alder and Contra. Way above average food for five courses, at basically the same price you would pay for an app and entree at any other nice place. Worth it!

    One of my most incredible meals in NYC. Favorites included stroganoff, pub cheese, octopus and hamachi. Not a weak link amongst any of the dishes we tried. I'll be back, without a doubt.

    Wylie Dufresne serves inventive food that's easy to enjoy. The New England clam chowder, rye pasta, and pigs in a blanket are already on their way to becoming Wylie classics. [Eater 38 Member]

    Smoked Arctic char is like the best BBQ you've ever had. And the wine list - BTG and bottle is ridiculously well priced and interesting. Couldn't complain about anything. Service was wonderful as well

    Clam chowder is phenomenal!! Pu-pu platter is ok. Pub cheese is meh: cream cheese w/ pistachio brittle. Skip the Rye pasta & go get a Katz's deli sandwich. Wish I tried the octopus, scallops, & duck.

    Kevin is so laid back and great. Definitely ask him to make your drink. I also love the half size option so I can try more cocktails and not break the bank.

    Excellent, inventive cocktails and small plates from mad food scientist Wylie Dufresne. Come for a nibble or stay for a DIY tasting menu.

    Super delicious. The French onion soup rings were a magnificent pontine-like concoction and they're not to be missed! Also "pigs in a blanket."

    The dishes aren't as funky as you might want with Dufresne's reputation. Some dishes (Rye Pasta, Rootbeer Pudding, Pub Cheese) are memorable, while others (Octopus, Foie Gras, Caesar) fall short

    Even the truly conceptual dishes at Alder (rye pasta with shaved pastrami is the world’s most complicated deli sandwich) can be inhaled mindlessly and still be 100% enjoyable. Leggi tutto

    The flavors and textures of the octopus dish were out of this world. Sweet, earthy, tender, crispy. I wanted to lick the bowl. Maybe I did. Totally worth it.

    Fantastic service and drink program. Sadly underwhelmed by the burger. It was tasty, but I was expecting something mindblowing from Wylie. I would go back but order off the regular menu

    Not normally that impressed by deserts, but the root beer pudding was a real standout for me. Make sure you also try the foie and the pub cheese ( perfectly paired with pistachio brittle).

    Alder always has a stand out dish or two, and at brunch it's currently the bacon egg and cheese on the English muffin

    Loved the Pub Cheese, Salmon Tartare and the Rye Pasta ( with shaved pastrami....like a pastrami on rye in pasta form). Great cocktails as well

    Try the cocktails in the "short" size. They come in cute, half-sized glasses and are the perfect way to start a delicious meal.

    Good, but don't expect a repeat of wd-50: the gastronomic fireworks are relatively muted here. Portions are small, so order lots of plates, one of which should be the superb root beer pudding.

    The corn was dry & the roasted chicken was so fatty it resembled duck. Positives were the pub cheese, sun gold tomatoes & the fish & chips. True stand out was the root beer pudding. "Ok" for the nabe.

    Epically small portions, so you'll have to double up on some things. And when you do, make sure it includes the Ham and cheese eclairs

    It’s easy to love a place that’s making pigs in a blanket (even if they are made with compressed hot dog buns and Chinese sausage). Leggi tutto

    Skip the octopus and crab crostini and go for the quail egg, pigs in a blanket, and jalapeño poppers. Delicious!

    Try rhe Chinese pigs in a blanket to start. Then don't miss the pastrami on rye (did I mention it's served as... a pasta?).
