Buy A Piece of Modernist History When the Entire Contents of wd~50 Are Auctioned Off Tomorrow

Tomorrow every last freezer, banquette, and spoon will be sold.

These tables could be yours.

At the end of last month, New Yorkers said goodbye to wd~50, Wylie Dufresne's groundbreaking modernist restaurant on the Lower East Side. Now Wylie Dufresne is saying goodbye to everything in wd~50, down to the last salt shaker. Though some may note that he's been trying to sell off at least his stove on Twitter for a while now, tomorrow the entire contents of the restaurant (stove included) go up for auction.

There, with enough money and a little bit of luck, one might get their hands on anything from a deep fryer to a nice sauce pot, a set of cocktail glasses, a banquette, or the entire 14 foot marble bar. The auction takes place at 2:30 p.m. at the restaurant tomorrow. It could be a great place to find that unique holiday gift for your favorite at-home modernist chef or wd~50 aficionado.
