Just a few weeks after it was first announced and a couple of days after initial friends and family meals, Dovetail chef/owner John Fraser will debut his pop-up restaurant What Happens When to the public this week—tomorrow if all goes as planned, but possibly Wednesday, Fraser says.
As mentioned previously, the pop-up will exist at 25 Cleveland Place in Soho for the next nine months, after which it will be completed disassembled. Each month, Fraser and his team of artists and designers will create a new theme for the space and alter the menu, soundscape, design, and graphics accordingly, leaving just the black walls and white outlines. Fraser has a whole slew of tricks up his sleeve for the coming months, so stay tuned to see how this restaurant/art installation evolves. The menu, a $58 prix fixe, is below.
