Daniel Humm and Will Guidara are set to launch Made Nice, their first fast-casual dining concept which will open on West 28th Street, New York - right next to their Nomad hotel.
Humm and Guidara are hot off the back of being named number one on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list for their Eleven Madison Park restaurant and promise Made Nice will serve a collection of “composed dishes built on recipes that have been developed over decades of learning and experience.”
The new menu borrows from classics dishes, techniques and combinations perfected at Eleven Madison Park and the Nomad restaurant, with a focus on creating delicious, quick and accessible food.
Dishes include: Pork and carrots, curry cauliflower, chicken rice, salmon rosti and a new take on Humm’s famous ‘Milk and Honey’ dessert. Prices for mains range from around $11 to $15 and the most expensive dish on the menu, a dinner item of chicken frites, is priced at $22 for a roasted half chicken, lemon-parmesan stuffing, herb fries and a pickled vegetable salad.
This opening is part of growing movement across the U.S where many chefs and restauranteurs are stepping into the fast-casual market.
