[New York City, NY] The New York Times gave Ma•dé the lede in its “Off the Menu” column.

“For their first restaurant, Cédric Vongerichten, his wife, Ochi Vongerichten, and their partner, Ezra William, chose Wayan, which means firstborn in Indonesian,” writes the Times. “They have now followed up with Ma•dé, meaning second born, in a narrow space next to Wayan.”

“Ma•dé takes a more global approach, relying on France and Japan for many of the assorted small plates, like white asparagus with seaweed kimchi, gnudi with mushrooms, ramps with green asparagus and morels, shrimp toast served like shrimp cocktail, lobster dumplings with caviar sauce, and diver scallops with rhubarb, jalapeño and dill.

“Finales include warm madeleines with rhubarb chutney, and black sesame chocolate mousse with raspberries.

“The new restaurant, seating 25 at tables set along a single banquette, is light with whitewashed brick walls and touches of rattan, contrasting Wayan’s plant-filled dark wood setting. ‘This is a Balinese beach party,’ Mrs. Vongerichten said. ‘Wayan is in the jungle.'”

New York City is already a jungle. We’ll take the beach party.
