AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Located on one of the coolest streets (that would be Clinton Street) in one of the coolest neighborhoods (Yes, that’s right, the Lower East Side), the brick-and-glass façade of this 65-seat restaurant screams “unassuming.” But nothing could be further from the truth. Meet Wylie Dufresne, mad genius with a spatula in his hand. Chef Dufresne deconstructs dishes and then puts them back together again, creating a culinary art that manages to rock taste buds at the same time. You were just thinking you wanted Campari-infused smoked eel? Had a hankering for venison atop freeze-dried polenta? It’s here and it tastes a lot better than you think. So much so wd~50 has earned a coveted Michelin star as well as a three-star review from The New York Times.
