Occupying a former bodega in Lower Manhattan, WD~50 is acclaimed chef Wylie Dufresne's first venture where he is both the owner and chef. Designed by Dewey Dufresne and Louis Mueller, the interior of the Michelin star-rated restaurant includes a fireplace, copper lighting, bright orange and teal walls, and a bathroom mosaic by Tim Snell. Known for his creative presentation, chef Dufresne's menu includes such dishes as a poached egg resting gently in its shell, foie gras atop a nest of passionfruit and shaved Chinese celery, and cold fried chicken with buttermilk-ricotta and caviar.
