"Sometimes all the mad neurologists at Alder need to do is hit you with an ingredient you weren’t expecting. The ricotta next to beets pickled in rice vinegar isn’t ricotta at all but crumbled coconut milk gel. The flavor is wonderfully refreshing, especially when you eat it with the green shards that taste of tender, minty Thai basil." 

— Pete Wells, The New York Times, July 9, 2013 

"At WD-50, in recent years, you could sense the chefs laboring mightily to come up with their next molecular-gastronomic trick, but at Alder, most of the cooking has a refreshingly seamless quality to it."
— Adam Platt, New York magazine

The New York Times: ** (very good), Critics' Pick
