The three-Michelin-starred New York restaurant will be going completely plant-based when it reopens next month, it announced Monday — becoming one of the most high-profile restaurants to do so.
And though in his statement, Humm said he recognizes the risk of making such a move, he also said he believes it’s worth it.
“It is time to redefine luxury as an experience that serves a higher purpose and maintains a genuine connection to the community,” he wrote on the restaurant’s website. “A restaurant experience is about more than what’s on the plate. We are thrilled to share the incredible possibilities of plant-based cuisine while deepening our connection to our homes: both our city and our planet.”
