Diner’s Journal reported earlier today that starting this Friday, ’wichcraft will be operating a new “restaurant” at the southwest corner of Bryant Park, serving small plates of cheeses and charcuterie as well as sandwiches themed after various cities. A note from the Bryant Park Corp. clarifies that the 175-seat alfresco area, which includes porch swings and rocking chairs, is not actually a restaurant: “The Porch is a cozy lounge area open to all park visitors for relaxation, contemplation, people-watching, reading, etc. Those who enter the area are not required to place an order with ‘wichcraft. Indeed, they can bring their own food and beverage if they wish.”
