Young and Hungry

Welcome Back, R.J. Cooper!

After 10 weeks on the sidelines while recovering from open-heart surgery, Rogue 24 chef-owner R.J. Cooper gets back to business on Tuesday. Cooper tells the Post that he's planning to revamp the entire 24-course menu. A few hints: one dish involves the Coop's take on a gyro (think lamb tartare wrapped in little lettuce leaves) and others may incorporate Oreos. But, it's probably best to expect the unexpected, or simply drop the expectations, altogether—the chef would prefer it that way. Y&H is happy to see the Rogue Toque back on his feet. Watch Washington's most audacious molecular gastronomer make—er, build—me a sandwich here.
