The bad news? Eleven Madison Park still isn't open for on-premises dining.
The good news? You can order up their three-Michelin-starred meals to enjoy at home, and your fancy night in will go towards supporting a great cause.
In the earliest days of the pandemic, chef Daniel Humm and his world-renowned restaurant stepped up to the plate to support the city in its time of need. Last April, the eatery turned its kitchen into a food commissary to whip up meals for first responders and healthcare workers, partnering with Rethink Food NYC to donate up to 3,000 meals daily at the height of the COVID-19 battle.
Now, Eleven Madison Park is taking their meals on wheels - quite literally - with the debut of their new food truck. Teaming up with Rethink once again, Humm and the Eleven Madison Truck will aim to serve 2,000 meals a week to New Yorkers facing food insecurity, especially in areas of Brooklyn and the Bronx.
By purchasing one of EMP's At Home dinners, which are available for pickup in Manhattan, Westchester, Connecticut, New Jersey, and the Hamptons, you'll help deliver 10 meals to your neighbors in need.
Once the restaurant finally reopens its doors, a portion of the proceeds of all in-person dining will also go towards supporting the truck, which Eleven Madison Park and Rethink hope to keep going indefinitely.
If you've been waiting for a reason to indulge in some high-end bites, this sounds like a pretty good one.
