Watch a Short, Bittersweet Documentary About the Final Days of wd~50

By

It’s been just about seven months since Wylie Dufresne had to close wd~50, and in that time Dufresne has introduced an acclaimed burger and a new tasting menu at Alder (which includes the much-photographed octopus pancakes), announced he’ll open a new restaurant next year, and even learned just how dicey it can be to order an “iced coffee” in Italy. Meanwhile, Time has been putting together this 15-minute retrospective of wd~50, which manages to cover both the restaurant’s history and its final days, and includes interviews with many of Dufresne’s friends and family members. For everyone who still misses aerated foie and deep-fried mayonnaise, this is the video for you.
