What to Eat at John Fraser’s What Happens When, Popping Up Next Week


Dovetail chef John Fraser’s pop-up in the Le Jardin space is now accepting reservations, and we’ve got the menu for you. As previously mentioned, it’s a $58 prix fixe that’ll change once a month until this curious experiment ends in about nine months. Starting January 25, What Happens When will be open Tuesday through Sunday, 5:30 till 11 p.m., and walk-ins will be accepted. As for drink service, your bartender will be roving around with a bar cart stocked with one brand of each spirit as well as two whites and two reds — and there’ll be a couple of monthly cocktails. After you’ve clicked through our slideshow to see some of the dishes that Fraser describes as vaguely Scandinavian, watch him give Feast a tour of the restaurant. And now, your first look at the menu.
