Remember last fall when a slew of French chefs took over the kitchens of the Momofuku Empire and wd~50 for a night? And resys were pretty much impossible to get? And Dave Chang and Michel Bras cooked an all vegetarian dinner in Wylie Dufresne's kitchen? It was all brought to you by Omnivore, an iconoclastic French dining guide. And they're putting on another show this June.
Details are still scarce but the folks at Blue Hill do confirm the Reichl tweet that they'll be hosting a dinner on June 6 at 6PM. The chef tentatively scheduled to take over their kitchen is Italy's avant garde Massimo Bottura (praised here by Frank Bruni). Stay tuned for details on which other chefs and restaurants are involved and what shenanigans they have in store.
Oh, and that other big French invasion, the two day Le Fooding festival that took place at P.S. 1 last year, is also a go for 2010.
