Eleven Madison Park Moves to The Hamptons for EMP Summer House
The Hamptons is a popular summer seaside destinations for New Yorkers, and NYC’s best restaurant is also not missing out on the fun this year. This summer, Eleven Madison Park is closing up shop in Manhattan and moving out to East Hampton to open a pop-up restaurant, EMP Summer House in partnership with American Express. While the Hamptons is filled with great restaurants, this summer marks a unique opportunity to try the food from the kitchen that has earned 3 Michelin stars, 4 stars from the New York Times, and currently named as #1 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
The EMP Summer House will be a much more casual affair than the Manhattan restaurant and without the dress code. There will be an a la carte menu and in addition to the indoor dining room, tents and picnic tables will be set up in the backyard complete with lawn games.
The Eleven Madison Park culinary team will be collaborating with farmers and producers near East Hampton for the menu, which may include snacks and starters such as Parker House rolls, raw oysters, beef tartare, and fluke ceviche. Main courses and other larger plates may include poached lobster with corn and tomatoes, seafood bouillabaisse for two, clam and bacon flatbreads, and pasta dishes. Out in the tented area, a more casual a la carte menu will be served – hamburgers, Humm dogs, and other dishes made with local seafood.
In addition to the a la carte menu, on select dates there will also be two large format feasts with a minimum of six people per booking (maximum 12 people). The Fried Chicken Feast comes with boneless fried chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, parker house rolls, pickles, watermelon salad, and a seasonal pie. There’s also a large format Lobster Boil which also includes clams, shrimp, sausage, potatoes, corn, tomato salad, and pie.
Reservations for the indoor dining room are available exclusively to American Express members and American Express will be the only credit card payment accepted. A $25 deposit is required for regular reservations, while the large format feasts must be fully prepaid in advance. The full menu will also be available to patrons dining at the bar.
