It’s a posh dining experience in the heart of New York City. It doesn’t get any more Manhattan than this—translation: you’re fancy boo. Steps away from Central Park, your birthday could extend beyond the amazing meal you’ll have here and you can take your friends to the park (unless it’s dark, don’t do that). Speaking of friends, make sure you bring your classy ones because this is not the place for ratchet. Sorry, not sorry.
Sure, you could wear jeans and a T-shirt, but first of all, why would you? It’s your birthday! And second, you’d feel slightly underdressed. It’s the type of place you’re likely to run into a celebrity (think less Rihanna, more Beyonce). Yes, it feels that fab here. Each dish is special and appears to be specifically made for you, the space is sophisticated and luxurious. It’s the best choice if you want to celebrate your big day with amazing food with a VIP experience.
You’ll wish the food came from your kitchen, mostly because you’re going to want to eat it all the time. Breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner—pick your poison because they have them all. There’s chicken and cheddar chive waffle with bacon country gravy and Thai chili honey. Omg, did your stomach just growl? Us too. And that’s only one brunch dish. There’s steak, lobster (which naturally means lobster rolls), sushi and more delectable dishes that taste like they’ve been made by Jesus’ hands.
This bi-level restaurant boasts a classic elegance that may be too good for you. Just kidding. You deserve nice things. But it’s like Lucious Lyon and Don Draper got together to design a restaurant. Tufted banquette seating, stunning and eclectic art all over the place, steak that will make you slap somebody’s momma (not yours, you’re smarter than that) and drinks that have been expertly crafted for your tastebuds. If no one else cares about your birthday, The Wayfarer does.
