Waverly Inn & Garden

16 Bank St.
New York, NY, 10014, United States
TEL: (917) 828-1154

Occupying the ground floors of two West Village townhouses is the exclusive Waverly Inn & Garden, first opened in 1920 and again in 2006 by Graydon Carter, editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair, along with Sean MacPherson, Eric Goode, and Emil Varda. The interior captures the essence of outdoor dining, featuring an ivy-covered brick wall, which has candlestick lampshades poking out among the leaves, ferns, green banquettes, a shed-style door, and soft lighting. Executive chef Eric Korsh and his team specialize in New American cuisine made with seasonal local ingredients, with representative dishes including chicken pot pie and truffle mac and cheese.

Insider Tip:

Unless you're an A-lister, the reservation policy at the Waverly can be tricky. None are accepted by phone, so it's best to show up in person.
