One of the best restaurants in the world became vegan- The announcement of the owner and chef

It is one of the most famous restaurants in New York, awarded with 3 Michelen stars, and one of the best in the world. Eleven Madison Park is preparing to reopen its doors but it will not be the same as before.

According to the owner and chef, Daniel Humm, the new menu will be based on vegan dishes, without any animal products.

“Eleven Madison Park is a fine dining restaurant located in the heart of New York City. The restaurant overlooks Madison Square Park, one of the most beautiful parks in Manhattan, and sits at the base of a historic Art Deco building on the corner of East 24th Street and Madison Avenue.”

“We have always acted with sensitivity to the consequences we have in our environment. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that the existing food system is simply unsustainable in so many ways … It is clear that after what we have experienced in the last year, we could not reopen the same restaurant. We decided to serve a vegan menu, in which we do not use any animal products – each dish is made from plant products, either land or sea, as well as fruits, legumes, mushrooms, seeds and much more. The way we prepare our food, the way we consume our food, the way we eat meat, is not sustainable. And this is not an opinion. It is a fact. That is why we decided that our restaurant should have a 100% vegetable base “, he wrote in a relevant post on the restaurant’s Instagram.

With this move, he hopes to motivate other companies to reduce or stop the use of animal products in their menus, in order to promote the trend of less toxic food.
