One of my favorite Manhattan restaurants heads out east this summer. Eleven Madison Park is opening a pop-up called EMP Summer House in the former Moby’s space. With its charming farmhouse appeal and lovely outdoor patio, it is the perfect warm-weather venue. While their city location undergoes a complete renovation, Chef Daniel Humm, pictured above, and restaurateur Will Guidara will offer a menu of seafood-centric dishes in the East Hampton restaurant from late June through early September.
To celebrate the new location, EMP Summer House is teaming up with Departures magazine and American Express to host an exclusive conversation series in the pop-up space. Talks will range from fashion to travel and I have been invited to speak on the topic of home and design with Departures editor Dan Rubinstein. Open to Platinum Card and Centurion members, this event promises great food and conversation.
