Famed NYC restaurant, Eleven Madison Park, reopening with all vegan/vegetarian menu

I can’t imagine paying their exorbitant prices for vegetables.

Glad I ate there in the old days!

Is it vegan or vegetarian? Those are different things.

I'm down for a nice vegetarian meal, but wouldn't want to spend big money on a vegan one.

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 205/04/2021

Quote from their website, sounds like vegan to me.

“ I’m excited to share that we’ve made the decision to serve a plant-based menu in which we do not use any animal products — every dish is made from vegetables, both from the earth and the sea, as well as fruits, legumes, fungi, grains, and so much more.”

and stupid rich people who hate themselves will still shell out $500 per person for what amounts to a SALAD BAR

No butter, no cream, no cheese?

Pass.

Is Dinosaur Ribs still open?

Sounds delish!

I see them quietly rolling this back in 12 months. There may be enough people in NYC who can shell out hundreds of dollars for leaves, roots, and potatoes, but vegetables are rarely memorable food items. Eventually, after the novelty wears off, people won't return.

The one and only time I ate there, I had the duck with daikon and plum. It was delicious, as was the entire meal, and quite expensive. Sorry that they're not going to be serving it anymore. I don't think their new concept will be successful, but I'm usually wrong about such things.

Sitting across from us was a family of four: mom, dad, and two very bored-looking teenagers. The kids looked absolutely miserable. Apparently they were forbidden to use their phones during dinner (three cheers, mom and dad) but I'm sure the kids would much rather have been at Shake Shack across the street in the park. I can't imagine spending that kind of money on kids who obviously didn't appreciate it.

Some people have more money than sense R9.

[quote] Some people have more money than sense

They appeared wealthy. They were speaking Italian, IIRC, and were probably visiting NY. Very well dressed, including the children, which most Americans aren't. I'm sure they wanted to give their children a nice evening but the kids looked old enough to have gone out on their own. Aside from the money, I would not have been able to relax and have a nice evening if I had to look over and see my child sulking and pushing the food around their plates, but then I've never been a parent.

I would've given them $50 told them to get a couple of burgers, go see a movie, and be back at the hotel by midnight.

The YouTube comments have a lot of white Karens applauding the move and "love, love, loving it."

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 1205/04/2021

R12 Any comment from the black Laquishas?

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 1305/04/2021

People go to high end restaurants for the best cuts of meat, fowl, fish, shellfish, cheeses. A treat really.

Is vegan a treat? Something special? Something you want to splurge on?

I'll be surprised if this policy lasts.

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 1405/04/2021

Look at the publicity this announcement got, I do think there will be a rush of diners to est there just to say they did.

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 1505/04/2021

R15 and after eating their $80 potato, they won't back.

Why not? I love veggies! And they can be quite expensive! 🍆🍑💵

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 1705/04/2021

I wonder if they'll have a children's menu for R17.

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 1805/04/2021

Oh em gee! I hope so! My kiddos love veggies but I wouldn’t dare dream of taking them to such an expensive restaurant. But if there’s a kids menu to cut down on the cost then sure! DH and I will just have to have date nite 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨 at some other place!

by P.S. I love Will Reeve reply 1905/04/2021

It will be cuisine evolved from molecular gastronomy. SF has pulled off, briefly, some high end places that do this. But that's SF. There will be a LOT of "fungi" (mushrooms for your plebes) and desperate tie ins of seaweed to get some satisfying Unami. I don't know how they will sell the wine that delivers profits. Of course bowls an plates of vegetables can be cheap to source but they will get the best, which isn't easy.

Pass on my dime, but I'd gladly try it on someone else's dime.
