An egg-centric dinner collaboration at Fedora with Wylie Dufresne
Chefs Wylie Dufresne and Fedora’s chef Jin Kang will cook up a five-course dinner on May 6 and May 7 at the West Village restaurant, all centered on the egg. Dishes include inventive takes on “green eggs and ham,” an uni egg drop soup, a “ramen carbonara,” as well as a classic New York egg cream. There will be wine pairings, plus cocktails involving eggs, like a brandy old fashioned fizz. Dufresne is known for his offbeat flavors and science-forward approach to cooking at acclaimed restaurant Wd~50. It shuttered in 2014, though he has continued to host popups and runs Du’s Donuts in Williamsburg. The Fedora menu marks a rare opportunity to eat savory cooking from the chef. Reservations for the Fedora dinners are available on Resy. It is $96.99 per person, and beverages are not included.
