Today’s Solutions: May 21, 2024

In April of last year, we shared how famous New York restaurant Eleven Madison Park had repurposed its kitchens to make meals for doctors, nurses, and first responders. Now, the restaurant is scheduled to once again open its doors to the public, but with a green upgrade. Owner and chef Daniel Humm has announced that the three-Michelin starred restaurant will reopen with an entirely plant-based menu. 

Slated to open June 10, Eleven Madison Park will make history as the first restaurant of its caliber to go meat-free in New York City and the first vegan three-Michelin starred restaurant in the world. 

“The way we have sourced our food, the way we’re consuming our food, the way we eat meat, it is not sustainable. And that is not an opinion. This is just a fact,” Humm said in an interview with NPR. “So we decided that our restaurant will be 100 percent plant-based.”

The increased popularity of plant-based diets is driving this food revolution, even at the highest levels of dining. Back in January, French restaurant ONA became the first vegan restaurant in the country to be awarded a Michelin star. The transition of restaurants towards plant-based meals is highly encouraging as it offers an opportunity to introduce more people to the benefits and taste profiles of plant-based meals and offers more dining options for those that choose to adopt a more sustainable diet.
