A distinctive modern American menu created by David Bouley protégé Rodolfo Contreras emphasizes seasonal, local, & sustainable ingredients, appealing to the savvy palates of New Yorkers & discerning travelers from around the globe. <br /><br />The Wright combines an upscale atmosphere with a sleek, modern, & comfortable venue comprising 60 seats & a communal table where guests can enjoy a full-service menu. A casual, European-style bar that features small plates, paninis, & cocktails serves as a lively focal point of the space. <br /><br />The 2010 James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Restaurant Design has been awarded to Andre Kikoski Architect for its design of the Guggenheim's fine-dining restaurant the Wright.

The unprecedented attention to detail in Andrea to recreate storied culinary traditions and classic dishes bursting with the true flavors of Italy has resulted in acclaimed authentic cuisine and complementary wine selections. Led by Chef Marco Criscuolo, Andrea sources the perfect seasonal ingredients and implements time-honored practices and preparations. Diners savor salads made with 100-year-old Balsamic vinegar, exquisite pastas made in a one-of-kind, temperature-controlled pasta room and artisan-style gelato made in the gelato laboratory. A chic, yet understated and relaxed atmosphere features inspiring coastal panoramas, sunsets over the Pacific, open-air dining on the beautiful, heated ocean-view terrace and round bar with its golden granite countertops and golden fruitwood paneling. Fine Italian wines are perfectly paired with each exquisite dish.

Blue Plate Taco is best described as fresh and light beachside Mexican cuisine. Our menu items consist of many organic and substainably farmed ingredients. We offer a variety of fresh crudo and ceviche. Our meat and fish are premium products sourced from some of the country’s best purveyors. Our masa and tortillas as well as all of our salsas are made fresh daily. The core of our beverage program begins with our daily house made agua frescas; In addition, we hand craft our cocktails and our beer/wine list was carefully selected to pair with our food. At 90 seats including a large patio that offers ocean and pier views, the vibe is lively and fun.

Chef Bill Telepan acclaimed former chef of the 3-star Judson Grill will serve the very best and freshest of seasonal foods impeccably prepared and paired with an interesting, hand-picked and reasonably priced selection of wines. Ruth Reichl described his cooking as “…extremely eloquent; each of [his] unassuming dishes roars with flavor, and the minute you finish one bite you instantly want another. His direct style draws diners into a vibrant interplay of textures, tastes and colors.” Located in the heart of the Upper West Side, Telepan welcomes fine dining enthusiasts from around the city, as well as the pre- and post-theater Lincoln Center crowd.

"On a night at the opera, the service was so attentive that no one needed a watch. The food was as amazing as always, with innovative, delicious seasonal fare."
