New, Magical Version of EMP to Debut on September 7

New, 14 comments

Right now, Daniel Humm, Will Guidara, and the entire Eleven Madison Park crew are hard at work on the new NYC history-inspired menu, which they will start serving on September 7. This promises to be an entirely new EMP experience that will include several interactive components and a few magic tricks. Last month, Guidara told the Times: "There is no point in adding elements of showmanship if it isn't fun...We're not looking to impress people. We want to entertain them."

There's been a lot of activity at the restaurant lately. Here's a guide to what's coming up at EMP:

The agenda:

September 7: New menu debuts at EMP
