Foursquare Tips

  • The new incarnation of the gonzo M. Wells, now a inside MoMA's PS1. French-Canadian and American diner classics meet foie gras with enormous, gratifying portions. Lunch only.
  • M. Wells reopens at MoMA PS1 with eats like escargot & marrow tarts, bibimbap w/ maple syrup & oysters, and caviar/ flower/ whipped butter sandwiches. --Thrillist
  • Save room for the pot pie and we promise you won't be disappointed.
  • The menu, chalked on a blackboard, changes daily, Taste: beef tartare sandwich, rabbit terrine, vegetable banh mi...A place that every food critic will check out. Chef and co-owner, Hugue Dufour
  • The best bone marrow I've ever had in my life. Anywhere. Pure decadence.
  • You can depend on this Motrealithic caf to turn out food stunningly beautiful and stunningly delicious, with colorful flourishes worthy of a Mondrian or Kandinsky. [Eater 38 Member]
  • "M. Wells treats cuisine as high art." A gravlax tart...was outrageously delicious, as were oysters Bolognese
  • The egg soufle was featured on Unique Eats. Looks good and seems dairy free. But the Russian crepes has creme frache, sturgeon caviar and smoked sturgeon so it does contain dairy.
  • Sandwiches here were great. Try the spaghetti sandwich! Very unique and tasty.
  • Foie gras oatmeal - are you kidding me? Gooaaaaaaaaaaaal
  • Pretentious and overpriced for small portions. The menu is wild and some of the dishes might be worth trying but since it changes daily you can only hope. The staff was pretty unpleasant as well.
  • One of the best brunches I have ever had. Highly recommend the bone marrow and escargot tart.
  • This PS1 revival has the same over-the-top spirit as the spectacular Queens diner original. The menu, which changes daily, runs to veal brains, blood pudding and big, seared slabs of foie gras.
  • Exquisitely underrated. Egg and tomato pot is salty, sweet, rich and comforting. Tortilla espanola is light and airy. Perfect for a lazy, dizzy Sunday afternoon contemplating post-post millennial art.
  • Beef tartare sandwich with miso mayo is spot on.
  • Spaghetti sandwich
  • Come to ps1 for M. Wells crazy delicious, meat forward food, stay for the free art (if you live in NYC). The "spaghetti sandwich" with meatballs was insane.
  • Like eating in the posh-est classroom - love this place!
  • Great food - delish beet salad - but everything a little disorganized. Always smells wonderful - lots of baking done here perhaps.
  • Chicken liver mousse toast
