It appears that Chef Wylie Dufresne's 11-year-old restaurant wd~50 will serve its last witty dish this coming November. The Chef Tweeted the news earlier this evening:

Earlier this year Bowery Boogie had wondered whether a forthcoming condo would either close or displace the restaurant, and though in April Dufresne assured Grub Street the restaurant "wasn't going anywhere," it seems like the darkest timeline may have come to fruition.

We reached out to the restaurant for any details about the closure and whether there are plans to reopen the trendsetting restaurant elsewhere. We'll update when we hear back. In the meantime, snag those wd-50 reservations ASAP and take heart that the chef's other venture, the equally whimsical Alder, isn't going anywhere (that we know of).
