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.
