60 Second Tasting Menu: wd~50, Winter 2014

New, 4 comments

Welcome back to 60 Second Tasting Menu, a fast-paced visual tour of stunning, elaborate, and technically advanced menus currently on offer across country. This week, take in Wylie Dufresne's 12-course winter tasting menu at his almost 11-year-old Lower East Side restaurant wd~50. Just last year, Dufresne did away with his a la carte menu, offering this sequence of new dishes for $155 and another, shorter "From the Vault" $90 menu of his classic hits. Turn up the volume, and see below for the full menu description.
