So, word on the Grub Street is that this place is about to close down. Well, what can I say? I’m not the least bit surprised. WD-50 is the restaurant version of that guy in Raiders of the Lost Ark who swings around the sword all crazy-like, only to get blown away by Indiana Jones… Only in this case, Indy is played by Momofuku Ko, a true master of culinary technology that actually translates into taste, something that always eluded WD-50. I mean sure the presentations were wonderful. And the inventiveness was off the charts. But all of that trickery comes crashing down after you take a bite and realize that tricks are indeed for kids.
But if eating pasta made out of shrimp is your thing, or if you always wondered what it would look like if a grape fucked a watermelon, than I strongly suggest you hurry before it’s too late. Don’t worry, I won’t get in your way.
