The EMP Summer House was originally conceived as a way to retain staff while the restaurant underwent renovations, but Daniel Humm and Will Guidara have decided to revive the project, a partnership with American Express, in the preferred summer bolt-hole of well heeled New Yorkers.
The set-up and menu remains largely the same, with lobster tempura and rolls, fried chicken, corn flatbread with Parmesan and truffles, and a rib eye for two all returning, plus do-it-yourself fish tacos a possible new edition, according to Bloomberg.
The EMP Summer House will run through from 25 May to mid-September, with reservations going live on 1 May.
The team has also announced that they’ll be opening a Winter House pop-up for the first time, in the ski-resort of Aspen, Colorado in December 2018, which will run through to March of 2019.
Swiss Humm will no doubt be in his element up in the mountains, so expect at the very least fondue, elevated to the EMP level of course, as the chef has been doing recently at the NoMad in New York.
So excited to announce that part of our team will be heading back to the beach this summer to launch #EMPSummerHouse in partnership with @AmericanExpress, where we’ll focus on the local seafood and ingredients of the Hamptons! And what’s more, that same group will head to Aspen later this year to launch #EMPWinterHouse (along with our friends at #AmericanExpress), looking to my Swiss roots for menu inspiration. Really can’t wait to share more details soon. (Link in bio for more info) #makeitnice
