I went to Whym for lunch and loved my experience. The lunch menu is less expensive than the dinner menu so if you want to try this newish restaurant on 9th avenue, check it out for lunch. Some of us ordered salads and some ordered sandwiches. The salads seemed to be more tasty than the sandwiches. The space is comfortable and it was not too crowded when we visited during the weekday. more

Owner Message

  • "Whym concentrates on pepped-up remixes of hearty traditional dishes, playing with classics the way their logo toys with form (it reads the same even when it's flipped). Take for example the chopped salad, which here features asparagus, bosc pear, beet cubes, crumbled feta, and a basil vinaigrette. The best thing about the dish though is that it works and is delicious: this is not a reinvention for originality's sake, it is an exploration with real purpose."

Editorial

  • The Scene
    Locals, well-suited colleagues, and third daters keep this chic retreat abuzz. The decor, with its chocolate lacquered tabletops, white birch floors and deep red accents, is upscale comfort, as is the menu. Smaller parties dominate the front, while larger parties sit at built-in booths, which are punctuated by whimsical rectangular disco chandeliers.

    The Food
    What makes the "sexy mushrooms" sexy? Aside from the menage a trois of shiitake, black trumpet and oyster, the facetious answer is the server. More arousing are the fried calamari which evoke a sweet heat from their overnight marinade of milk, honey and spicy harissa. Entrees run the gamut from a signature piping hot baked chicken sausage pot pie encrusted in an addictive cheesy biscuit to the delicate duck ravioli in Manchego cream sauce. Inventive desserts like pineapple pecan cake are not quite as impressive as the plate-licking warm chocolate souffle cake.
