At the crossroads of New York’s 57th and 6th Avenue is The Wayfarer, a classic American grille designed designed by Meyer Davis to showcase a diverse selection of regional American cuisine. The Wayfarer's executive chef Chris Shea offers delicious fresh takes on classic American dishes in an airy yet intimate setting. Having studied under celebrity chef David Burke for many years, Shea believes in market fresh ingredients interpreted classically yet executed with a unconventional air.
The design evokes a feeling of “old meets new,” drawing inspiration from the 1970’s blended with the classic New York of the 1800’s. A bi-level restaurant boasting floor to ceiling windows overlooking the hustle and bustle of New York City, you are treated to a variety of different experiences throughout the restaurant starting with the grand parlor punctuated by a staircase that leads to the second floor lounge and private dining areas. The main dining room is furnished in rich leathers and woods inspired by New York’s old gentlemen’s clubs.
The second floor mezzanine provides a more relaxed dining experience with a 20-foot bar and additional lounge seating lit by an interior exposed bulb marquee and is warmly illuminated by the dim red glow of The Wayfarer neon sign.
