Midtown is not the easiest part of town to find a restaurant to live up to expectations. But just steps away from Central Park is a delightful discovery that will bring bliss to locals and tourists alike.
The Wayfarer (101 West 57th Street) is a perfect place that will check off all your boxes on the list – great food, excellent service and gorgeous location.
From the moment you enter the doors there is a sense of escape from the hot sidewalk of the city and the loud noise surrounding you outside. The refreshing and airy space is divine. The bi-level restaurant features floor to ceiling windows overlooking the hustle and bustle of New York City.
You sit in large seats and plush comfort to start your meal. The food is just as pleasant. Service comes with beautiful smiles and there is no sense of rushing you out the venue. They want you to enjoy your time there. It is elegant in set-up and you embrace every moment with slow grace.
Food comes out in quantities that are beyond normal serving sizes. From the meat lover to the vegetarian there is a something to satisfy. And, to match heavenly dishes are cocktail menus that are bountiful. Sipping on the carefully curated drinks is a treat. They are bold and unforgettable selections.
There are many reasons to make this a stop during your busy days and nights in Manhattan, but even more for the upcoming Restaurant Week.
