MF Tasty Comes to Welcome Diner

​Hot on the heels of the second sold-out MF Tasty secret supper, I just got word that MF Tasty creator Eric Gitenstein (who's the chef at the fabulous Lola Tapas) will be doing a special lunch at Welcome Diner on Monday, May 3, followed by another by-reservation dinner that night.

I'll have a duck sausage hot dog with white truffle aioli, please!

It's about time somebody turns on the stove in the diner. Late last year, chef Nobuo Fukuda and others were doing one-off culinary events there, but the place hasn't been open as a regular restaurant for quite some time -- a car crashed into the building in December and it's been undergoing repairs.

The MF Tasty/Welcome Diner lunch will have a la carte menu, and the public can just drop in for a bite. That night's dinner will have two seatings, available by reservation. Read on for the menus:
