Pastry Chef Emily Wallendjack of Veritas - New York, NY

43 East 20th Street
New York, NY 10003
(212) 353-3700
Hours: Mon-Sun 5pm-12am

Dining at Veritas is like a slick, Flatiron version of dining in your own (extremely well-supplied) wine cellar in Nice. But with a new set of faces behind the burners, including Chef Sam Hazen and Chef de Cuisine Alexander Williamson (who join head Sommelier Ruben Sans Ramiro), the Veritas experience is evolving. Pastry Chef Emily Wallendjack fits right into the mold, with pastry that embraces both elegance and simplicity without delving into modernism. She excels at sophisticated hominess, as in her lighter-than-air peach cobbler and a satisfyingly smoky chèvre cheesecake with charred strawberries.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, Macadamia Nut Brittle, and Macademia Nut Brittle Ice Cream
  • Charred Strawberries, Chèvre Cheesecake, Raspberry Saffron Sauce, and Chocolate Cookie Crumble
