Michelin three-star restaurant Eleven Madison Park has joined a growing list of high-end establishments in New York to offer takeout and delivery services for the first time, as the hospitality industry as a whole continues to bounce back from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The restaurant’s “EMP To Go,” a dinner kit that consists of a ready-to-cook Green Circle chicken with sides, and a dessert prepared by chef Daniel Humm, is now available for pickup at six locations throughout the New York metro area. Consumers can order in advance at Tock for pickup or home delivery.

“We have been open for delivery, and we look forward to expanding our horizons with home gourmet offerings in a complete meal kit,” Humm said.  Packaged to feed two, the Eleven Madison Park comes with a brioche, foie gras, and black truffle stuffed chicken, that is paired with their signature granola, baked butternut squash, bitter greens salad, potato gratin, and an apple tart for dessert.

In addition to the flagship restaurant at 11 Madison Avenue, the other five locations for pickup include Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza; Montclair, N.J.; Bedford, Westchester; Greenwich, Conn.; and East Hampton, N.Y.

The kit costs $275. With each order, Eleven Madison Park will provide 10 meals for the needy through Rethink, a food charity Humm helped found. The pick-up offerings are an ongoing initiative leading up to the restaurant’s reopening. It will also offer special holiday-themed dinner sets for Thanksgiving and Christmas, the restaurant tells Penta.

Although New York City has the Open Restaurants Program, which allows restaurants in the city to extend seating onto streets, sidewalks, and public spaces, and indoor dining is permitted as long as it’s within 25% of capacity, challenges remain, with some patrons hesitant to dine inside even as cold weather looms.

Eleven Madison Park, famous for its multiple-course tasting menus, remains shuttered, and it has yet to announce when it will once again take reservations for dining.

Eleven Madison Park is an American restaurant located inside the Metropolitan Life North Building at 11 Madison Avenue in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, New York City. It ranked third among The World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2016, and topped the list in 2017.

The restaurant, designed by Bentel & Bentel, is located in the Metropolitan Life North Building, facing Madison Square, at the intersection of Madison Avenue and 24th Street. The restaurant originally opened in 1998 and was owned by restaurateur Danny Meyer. In 2006, Chef Humm and Will Guidara began working at Eleven Madison Park and in 2011 they purchased it from Meyer. Guidara has since moved on to new ventures.

Since the pandemic hit, a growing list of more than 30 Michelin-starred restaurants in New York City and Westchester County, which tend to have long waiting lists, have offered takeout services for the first time, according to the Michelin Guide.

Other Michelin three-star restaurants offering takeout services include Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare, and Masa, both of which are in Manhattan’s Midtown West.

At Masa, the most expensive sushi restaurant in the U.S., chef Masa Takayama is selling 20 boxes of sushi or sashimi each priced at $800 every Friday. Each box is meant to feed up to four people. The box is less expensive than a typical omakase at Masa, which runs $595 per person.

The takeout fare at Chef’s Table features a three-course a la carte menu, which has included Alaskan King crab salad, Norwegian langoustine with garlic, braised beef cheeks, and green tea tiramisu. Entrees are priced at $38 and above. A two-day advanced order through Caviar is required.
