Comrades, put down the rubbery Usdan chicken and cringe-worthy coffee. Step away from the congealing Summerfields quesadillas and offensively awful pho (do they still have that? I don’t even know). There’s a new Wesleyan food establishment for this semester only, and it’s holy shit amazeballs.
This past week, Abby Gruppuso ’16 sent us an email saying that her and Wolfi Jorde ’16 had created a pop-up restaurant in their senior house called Red Wolf and wanted us to come check it out. Wilk and I said yes for many reasons, including (but not limited to):
- Abby and Wolfi are hilarious, entertaining, and interesting humans.
- Free food (EMPHASIS ON FREE).
- The ego stroke that comes with being invited to an advance preview of a delicious new temporary eatery that is exclusively open only to ~*~the media~*~.
Anyway, I already had a good feeling about this, but Abby and Wolfi exceeded all expectations: We were met with a fully set table including tablecloths, dishware, and candles (ResLife, if you’re reading this, they were totally just fake lightbulbs). Each place-setting had its own printed menu with all sorts of bougie things that I haven’t eaten in four years on account of being on this campus.
And all I can say is damn, it was fucking delicious.
Read more after the jump to learn more about Red Wolf’s operation so you can get in on this mouthwatering goodness.
