Watch the wd~50 Team and Wylie Dufresne's Mom Celebrate the Restaurant's Final Days

Time magazine hung out in the kitchen before the restaurant closed and got it all on tape.

During the final days of wd~50, chefs and devoted diners swarmed the restaurant to experience one last (ticketed) meal and party with everyone else who showed up. Time magazine was also there, and captured the demise of Wylie Dufresne's trailblazing restaurant on tape. The full documentary, The Last Days of wd~50, will debut early next year, but in the meantime, check out the trailer. David Chang, Daniel Boulud, Lucky Peach's Peter Meehan, and Wylie's mom make cameo appearances. Meehan probably sums it up best when he says: "My first reaction to my first meal at wd~50 was not like awe and pleasure. It was like, 'What the fuck is this guy doing?'"
