The Wayfarer – Best Brunch in Town

The Wayfarer – Best Brunch in Town

When you hear the word brunch in Manhattan you may immediately ponder up images of soggy eggs and watered down mimosas. Sometimes it seems not even worth crawling out of your snuggly, weekend bed. Well, The Wayfarer in Midtown offers up a menu so wonderful that this perspective is going to change.

Executive Chef Chris Shea, who attended the Institute of Culinary Education for formal training and quickly immersed himself into the New York City culinary scene, has created the perfect brunch.

There is so much creativity in selections it is hard to say what is a favorite. And to top it off fresh products from Local Bushel partners from area, sustainable farms are found in every dish.

The atmosphere is phenomenal – another plus to add on the checklist for best in town points. And, the staff should receive an award for attending each and every customer like a celebrity.

Brunch selections are as massive as the portions being offered. There is no such thing as cliché dining here.

The Quinoa Krispies Salad comes with sliced bananas and strawberries. The Challah French Toast is sweetly beautiful with apricots, marzipan and vanilla bean. There are several options for egg dishes including Huevos Rancheros and Short Rib Hash with Poached Eggs. There is delightful Shakshuska Flatbread with perfectly poached eggs, tomato, ricotta salatta and a mixed green salad. For a lighter meal try the perfectly blended Tuscan Kale, Chicken and Rhubarb Salad with homemade ricotta, pickled strawberries, balsamic and pecorino.

On top of all these amazing selections there is also a sushi bar that is newly featuring for brunch a Sushi Egg Omelet that is out of this world.

And, if you are in the mood to start your morning with a fun vibe (or even your afternoon since brunch hours run long here) please try a selection from the drinks menu that will have you not caring a bit about that horrible work meeting coming up on Monday. The signature cocktail The Gypsy is divinely wicked with cucumber-infused Stoli Vodka, strawberry-yuzu and chili salt. For a Summer Poison try the wonderful Foxglove with rum, peach, Luxardo Maraschino, grapefruit and Pama Pomegranate Liqueur.


Delightful Drinks

The restaurant is classified as an American Grille, but it can be easily argued that what is on hand is simply art for foodies.

The two-story venue is located on the corner of 57th Street and 6th Avenue, and is joined with the Quin Hotel. Spectacular interiors designed by Meyer Davis mix vibes of old-school Manhattan with fantastic rock-n-roll montages. The music pumping in the room will leave you happily taping away on the table. From the grand parlor, the second floor clubroom bar, to its three private dining rooms, guests are treated to a variety of different dining experiences.

The Wayfarer is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at 101 W 57th Street. For more information and to book reservations call (212) 691–0030 or please visit
