For 48 hours this week, some of the world’s most acclaimed chefs were living in hiding in New York City, preparing the ultimate surprise party for Wylie Dufresne: http://nyr.kr/1gLjbCG
They’d focus on three of Dufresne’s signature dishes: shrimp noodles, cold fried chicken, and scrambled egg ravioli, a cube-like concoction made of scrambled eggs encased in a sheath of egg yolk. They’d form cooking groups, pick their dishes, and converge at wd~50 on a Tuesday, when the restaurant was closed. At the appointed hour, someone would call Dufresne to inform him that the restaurant was flooded. When he came rushing over, he’d arrive to the party of his dreams.
Such a fun story.

You and me both, Bourdain.
