The Wayfarer design is a celebration of "old meets new", mixing the high points in design from the 1800's and 1970's. Combining elements of grandeur and modern design, the main dining room upholds an aesthetic of warm modern opulence and pays homage to social clubs of time periods past. Both floors total over 4,400 square feet, and accommodate 290 guests total.
Look up and the design team's lighting choices will entertain you. A mix of contemporary lighting and antique finds, large chandeliers are surrounded by small brass fixtures strung throughout the space. The collection allows guest to feel tucked beneath something special. Standout design features of The Wayfarer include a sumptuous custom made 1970's inspired serpentine banquette, a vintage theater marquee ceiling and stylized graffiti. Hanging from the stairwell is a larger than life graphic fabric curtain with a collage of contemporary art floating in front. This tongue in cheek salon-style collection is mimicked in the main dining room and upstairs lounge, where the artwork goes from bold and colorful, to clubby black and white shots.
New York City hospitality innovators Eric Marx and Lisle Richards of The Metric, along with Jimmy Haber of ESquared Hospitality wanted to launch a restaurant within the Quin Hotel that embodies the hotel's commitment to guests being the centerpiece of an amazing hospitality experience, in which guests will feel the level of luxury service and refinement that welcomes diverse global communities. In a collaboration of team work and decisions, The Wayfarer promotes a warm and luxuriant dining experience seven days a week that resonates with the classic New York connoisseur, the adventurous foodie and everyone in between.
An expertly stocked grand pewter bar is lined with textured bar stools that intimate bar-height dining banquettes. Upstairs, expert detailing can be found in custom tufted dining chairs with velvet patterned backs. Neon signage floats in the windows, and retro spiked chandeliers hang from a cork ceiling in the private dining room. Illuminated wine cases line the hallway leading from front to back of the second floor. These rooms are open to interpretation in terms of configuration, but large dining tables are broken up with residential style wingback chairs, and inviting couch, and custom designed credenzas.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
