Hot on the heels of news that Gauthier Soho would be reopening as fully plant-based, Eleven Madison Park just announced that it will switch to a 100% vegan menu when it opens for indoor dining on June 10th. It's both a sign of our plant-forward times, and a radical departure for a three Michelin-starred restaurant that was famous for dishes like honey lavender roasted duck and a foie gras torchon.
While acknowledging the challenge in creating vegan dishes that are just as satisfying as the classics, chef and owner Daniel Humm states on EMP's homepage: "It is time to redefine luxury as an experience that serves a higher purpose and maintains a genuine connection to the community. A restaurant experience is about more than what's on the plate."
