Walking through the doorway of Wayan, you’re instantly transported. Antique tealights hang over an underlit bar rich with brass and copper hues. Oversized palm fronds hang lazily over candlelit tables filled with diners in intimate conversation.

Faces may blur, but Cedric Vongerichten’s highly conceptual French-Indonesian menu shines in a wide range of dinnerware from Haand Hospitality. You’ll see classic Haand shapes and glazes alongside some new favorites.

The Nara bowl hides layers of flavors and textures with its curved, high edges, while Haand’s new Birch glaze adds a peppery backdrop for some of Wayan’s most intricate dishes. Tamarind glazed baby back pork ribs studded with sesame seeds and crusted in a vibrant herbal spice rub are just one composition that dazzles on Birch.

Don’t skip the lobster noodles, Vongerichten’s essential melding of French and Indonesian fare where buttery richness meets briny umami notes. Twirl these glossy noodles around Amefa’s Matteware fork, featuring a striking matte black PVD finish that adds an anchor of industrial attitude to a tabletop inspired by organic vessels in shades of black, white and blue.

Cocktails are served in Finesse by Hospitality Brands and brought to your table on Jansen & Co copper trays from Serax.

When the meal is over and you find yourself back on a quiet stretch of Spring Street in NoLiTa, you’re reminded that you’re no longer on vacation, but the memories of Wayan will remain.
