Chefs Forgo Flatware at F*CK Forks
The buzzed-about Industree event, F*CK Forks, broke in the brand new Mess Hall space in the Edgewood neighborhood of Northeast DC Thursday night. Many local food-preneurs will soon call the warehouse home. Its many nooks and crannies were filled with top DC chefs and mixologists who were asked to ban utensils to support F*** Cancer, which is dedicated to detecting cancer in stage one for a positive prognosis.
We snapped Menu MBK chef Frederik de Pue getting a pork bun lesson from Toki Underground chef Erik Bruner-Yang. (Let's face it, it's not a party unless Erik's buns make an appearance.) Other chefs supporting Industree and the cause included Ripple's Marjorie Meek Bradley, Brabo's Harper McClure, Cava Mezze's Dimitri Moshovitis, and Jack Rose Dining Saloon's Russell Jones. Stiff drinks came from the capable hands of Dram & Grain's Trevor Frye, Chaplin's Micah Wilder, and Ri Ra Georgetown's Rachael Ewing.
