Tyler Florence »
If you haven’t heard much from Tyler Florence lately, it’s probably because he’s been busy making Wayfare Tavern, his newest restaurant, look as creepy and uninviting as possible. The restaurant is located in San Francisco, though the dead deer, animal bones, and brown witchy twigs strewn about make it feel much more like Hannibal Lecter’s living room. We’re not hungry; we’re scared. The only thing missing from that mantle is an eye of newt and a mason jar of goat blood.
Our friends at Eater have more photos of the place, and it’s filled with tacky wallpaper, skulls, dark wood, dark chairs, dark lights, dark ceilings, dark photos, and dead things. The “50-seat dining table” on the 3rd floor is nothing more than a bunch of wooden tables that have been slammed together cafeteria-style, and adorned with silver goblets and miscellaneous animal horns. Next door, the pool table lounge looks like a room from the hotel in The Shining. Gee, I sure do hope the red phone on that back wall is a direct line to the police.
In his interview with Eater, Tyler also took a moment to slam the New York food scene:
NY is all about the import. The new Japanese guy in town, the California wine, the new Italian fennel pollen, whatever. It’s all about these things that come into Manhattan and are done very well by great people, but there’s very little local story. -Tyler Florence
As a Manhattan-area resident, I found that comment to be both offensive and inaccurate. New Yorkers, what do you have to say in response to Tyler Florence?
