WD-50 Alums Plan Pop-Up Meals at Darnell’s in Washington, DC
Basil, formerly the sous chef at WD-50, and Wolff, a line chef for the restaurant until he left in 2010, have teamed up once again in Washington, D.C. to host a series of pop-up dinners for Feb. 18 and 19 at Darnell's Bar. Tickets are $125 and the menu includes razor clams, stone crab, and black tea ice cream. [related]
After his time at WD-50, Wolffe moved to London to work at Viajante, and was eventually appointed sous chef. Wolffe moved back to the States in September 2013 to pursue the pop-up project, Zero Degrees Zero Minutes.
The six-course meal will include wine pairings and other treats. Eater reports that the project is a prelude to an eventual restaurant, to be opened somewhere in the D.C. area. See the the sample menu.
At the time of reporting, tickets for the Feb. 19 dinner are already sold out!
