Eleven Madison Park Is Going Vegan Because Kobe Beef Is Basic

The meatless menu will still cost $335, but Daniel Humm says there will be cows milk made available for your coffee.

A year ago, Daniel Humm was unsure if his restaurant Eleven Madison Park would ever reopen.

Now, the chef and owner of one of the World’s Best Restaurants has announced a bold new direction for his dining room. On June 10, EMP will re-open its doors as a plant-based restaurant. Gone will be dishes like his famous honey lavender roasted duck. Instead, he’ll offer a beet that’s been roasted for 16 hours, then presented in a clay vase that gets cracked open at the table. Also on the menu: peas with almond cream and pea-miso puree.
