The Wild Son is the least Meatpacking place in the Meatpacking District. It isn’t big, glitzy, or especially expensive, and it isn’t the sort of place you go to pregame for the Le Bain. We see all of that as a very good thing. Stop by this little restaurant (by the people who opened the Wayland), if you’re in the neighborhood and you need a casual lunch, brunch, or dinner. Think stuff like buckwheat pancakes and egg sandwiches with ingredients like broccoli rabe and shishito peppers. They also do a very decent smoked trout sandwich with bacon.
