Today Oliver Schwaner-Albright shares the news that Omnivore, an "iconoclastic restaurant guide and unapologetic champion of the more youthful, almost punk figures in France's culinary scene," plans to bring several fancy French chefs to New York this fall. And Dave Chang and Wylie Dufresne will be handing over their kitchens to them. All four dinners, called "Four Fucking Dinners" will go down on Sept. 14, so better start pulling strings to get those reservations now:
Pascal Barbot from L’Astrance (the most impossible reservation in Paris), will be taking over the kitchen of Momofuku Ko (the most impossible reservation in New York); Inaki Aizpitarte, of Le Chateaubriand, will be at Momofuku Noodle Bar; and Alexandre Gauthier, the rising star of La Grenouilliere will be at Momofuku Ssam Bar with David Kinch, the stealthy genius behind Manresa in California. The fourth restaurant is WD-50, where Wylie Dufresne and Chang will be joined by Michel Bras."Holy mother.
