Twitter Reacts to the News that wd~50 Will Close


When the news broke yesterday evening that Wylie Dufresne will close his trailblazing 11 year-old restaurant, wd~50, the restaurant world reacted with shock (although it's not entirely a surprise), sadness, and remembrances. Eater has reached out to Dufresne for details, but the chef has not yet elaborated on the reasons for the closure, or whether there are plans to relocate the icon of modern cuisine. Last night a representative for Dufresne told the Times that the chef was not ready to give further explanation just yet. But while waiting on more news, here's a roundup of reactions from the Twitter universe. Also don't forget that there are still a good six months to try that 12-course tasting menu.
