Now Open - The Wayfarer
savor the QUINTESSENCE of New York
The Wayfarer is a new gathering place in Midtown Manhattan where locals and hotel guests alike can enjoy a fresh seafood-focused menu in an inviting setting.
The two-story restaurant and bar is set to become a neighborhood landmark and is located on the corner of 57th Street and 6th Avenue.
With interiors designed by Meyer Davis, the restaurant evokes the experience of an old gentlemen’s club with a touch of disco-era design, inspiring a feeling of rediscovery and rebirth.
The restaurant’s dynamic landscape makes it the ideal location for a distinctive dinner in the main dining room or a custom cocktail in the elegant second floor clubroom bar.
The Wayfarer menu showcases a diverse selection of artisanal regional seafood. From the grand parlor, the second floor clubroom bar, to its three private dining rooms, guests are treated to a variety of different dining experiences.
The Wayfarer is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Chef Braden Reardon respects his roots. Inspired by his grandmother, a farmer in Pennsylvania (who recently celebrated her 90th birthday with us at the Quin), Reardon learned to appreciate local food from an early age.
He began to sow the seeds of his farm-to-table philosophy at the onset of his culinary career path by working in a local farm-to-table restaurant. He later moved to San Francisco where his work garnered and maintained a place in the Bauer’s Top 100 List.
The Monarch, Gilded Lily, The Wayfarer–the names evoke something like a fairytale rather than Manhattan's newest hotspots. But they're the latter, created by two men who've forged their way to the vanguard of New York's scene: nightlife and dining powerhouses Eric Marx and Lisle Richards, partners with a combined two decades plus in the business.
