What is Ye Waverly Inn?

The most exclusive little neighborhood haunt in the West Village.

Who: Gwyneth Paltrow, Ralph Lauren and family, Renee Zellweger, Cameron Diaz, P. Diddy, Patricia Fields, Brooke Shields, Sean Lennon, Steve Martin, Howie Mandel, Ivanka Trump, Ashley Olsen with Lance Armstrong, Calvin Klein, Sarah Jaessica Parker with hubby Matthew Broderick, Molly Sims, Jennifer Connoly, Ron Howard, Ellen Barkin, Lindsay Lohan, Bono, Jimmy Fallon, Harvey Weinstein and Gina Gershon are some the big names regularly spotted in the grand middle dining room, and Vanity Fair Editor, Carter himself, makes near-nightly appearances.

Why go to Ye Waverly Inn?

Owned by Vanity Fair Editor in Chief Graydon Carter, The Waverly Inn is the epitome of A-list dining that city dwellers are dying to sample. Spotting celebrities is like going on safari at the zoo. Graydon and partners recently breathed new life into the West Village mainstay, by adding their much-needed dosage of Vanity Fair styling to the quaint restaurant which has been open since 1920. The high profile owners kept the uneven wooden floors, low ceilings and ivy covered patio.

The newly redecorated interior includes fresh panache: velvet curtains and one of the most talked about art collections outside of the MOMA, including a mural by famed "New Yorker cover artist" Edward Sorele. The booths in the dining room are cushy and intimate. You'll eat, drink, and stargaze in good company.

The menu is casual and consists of bistro bites and comfort food staples. It has been rumored that the Inn's truffled Macaroni and cheese is to die forÖand also costs fifty-five dollars! But it's not only about the food at The Waverly Inn. It's about the carefully curated scene where the lucky few get a chance to mingle among celebs and dine in what seems to be a tear-out of a Vanity Fair photo shoot. Although the hardest part of an evening is gaining access to the Inn, itís definitely worth the effort.

When To Go To Ye Waverly Inn

There are three ways you can attempt to get a table at The Waverly Inn; you can be invited to the restaurant, try calling Vanity Fair editor in chief, Graydon Carter, at his personal office or you can roll the dice and score a walk-in table. Beware the listed phone number won't get you anywhere, it just rings. However, showing up at 6pm during the week is your best chance.

What to wear at Ye Waverly Inn

Fashion-forward, fashion-forward, fashion-forward. Since models drop straight from the New York Runway and into the Waverly Inn via a secret chute it means the rest of us need approach the Inn with the stealth fashion planning of Patricia Fields herself. Looking so out of style you're actually in style might help. Gamines have been spotted at the Inn donning over sized Batman tees and Adidas jumpsuits, so basically anything goes as long as the whole ensemble looks like it rolled out of bed that amazingly cool.

Pair Chloe Sevigney-esque high waisted shorts with leggings, and a sloppy tucked in tee.
