Dufresne still at 71 Clinton...?
I had heard rumour that the chef Wylie Dufresne was leaving 71 Clinton to open a restaurant with his father. Is he still at 71 Clinton...? And when will the new venture open...?
Wylie is no longer at 71. The good news is that the new chef is doing great work. I was just there this new year's eve and he did a 6 course meal with new items and they were all great and very much in the style that Wylie pioneered there. Wylie's new venue won't be open for a while. I think they're targeting spring, but not exactly sure when.
