These dudes look like they're in a rock band or just went to check one out downtown. But actually they are the chefs at WD-50, headed by Wylie Dufresne, formerly of 71 Clinton Fresh Food and who helped spark the Lower East Side restaurant boom. The Times gives foodies a glimpse into the new operation. Don't know if Wylie Dufresne is trying to be all ironic, but WD-50 is a lot like WD-40. Not to worry 71 Clinton fans - the new chef is doing just fine.
