Fulgurances is a French restaurant concept with three spots - plus a regularly-published magazine - in Paris. And its first American location just opened (in June 2021) in a former laundromat space in Greenpoint. The restaurant functions like an artist’s residency for chefs - inviting one at a time to run the restaurant and serve a seasonal tasting menu of their own design. Fulgurances Laundromat opened with chef Victoria Blamey (who most recently at Gotham Bar & Grill), and the summer 2021 menu is five courses focused on seafood. It’s pricey (the menu is $80, plus wine pairings, glasses, or bottles), but if you’re interested in experiencing a chef incubator, make a reservation for this intimate, special-occasion dinner.
