After reading Frank Bruni's 3-star review, I decided we had to give WD-50 a try. I had expected it to be weird, extremely cutting-edge, and was happily surprised that is was not. It was creative but not crazy. The food varied from very good to excellent. I do not, however, feel that it justified 3 stars from the Times (it was given 2 stars by William Grimes a few years ago and I think that would still be appropriate). Still, I was thinking that we might like to go back and try more of the dishes. Until I got the bill, and realized we were spending more than we did at Dovetail, Bar Blanc, Allen and Delancey, and Olana, all of which we were much more impressed by. There was no amuse bouche, and although tables around us were given petit fours (one little chocolate thing per person), we were not, and I haven't a clue why, but it just made a very bad "last impression".
