Alder

The 56-seat neighborhood spot is a modern interpretation of a public house, offering casual food, well-crafted cocktails and a selection of intriguing and affordable wines.
In the dining room, we serve exclusively a five-course $65 tasting menu.
And celebrating the spirit of every great pub, guests are welcomed to drop in at the bar for anything from a drink and a quick bite from our bar menu on the way home from work, to joining with friends or family in sharing a meal.

Chef Wylie Dufresne, along with Chef de Cuisine Ryan Henderson, apply innovative techniques in the kitchen at Alder, taking familiar dishes and flavor combinations and presenting them in their own unique style, celebrating New York City’s diverse food culture in the process. Dufresne and Henderson find their inspiration in their metropolitan surroundings: New York is a city where we can source the best ingredients from around the world and turn them into something distinctly American.

"Wylie's original WD-50 is tough to beat, and it's hard to make fair comparisons, but Alder is designed to be more casual. The food is inventive (such as as pastrami pasta), but it lacks the punch to make it a neighborhood gem. That said, a solid addition to the village."

"What a fantastic dining experience. We ordered one of everything on the menu. The portions were small and delicate, more so an appetizer size in most restaurants. The pub cheese served with pistachio crumble, the very dainty pigs in a blanket, the incredible fettuccine with the finest paper thin shavings of pastrami, the most evil and indulgent onion rings with gruyere sauce and OMG, the delectable burger. Every dish we tasted was smart and delicious. The service was polite and charming. They made for me the tastiest "mocktail". How sad they are closing. How great we caught them 2 nights before their closing. I cannot wait for them to come back."

"The tasting menu was pretty strong throughout the whole dining experience. I had some food allergies and the chef was able to accommodate me quite well without making me feel like I'm missing out. The strongest dish would be the steak - cooked perfectly and very flavorful. Ovaltine ice cream cake was very delicious. The food isn't as adventurous as WD50, but you could tell that they chef tried to work outside of the box."

"Alder's excellent food, attentive yet relaxed service, and vibrant dining room made for an all-around memorable evening. The pigs in a blanket and rye pasta are must-try dishes, but for me the real star of the show was the bite-size grilled cheese amuse bouche. Genius! Alder, like its predecessor wd~50, will certainly be missed."
