Restaurateurs Will Guidara and Daniel Humm plan to end their eight-year business partnership later this summer.
Together, the duo has an empire of restaurants and bars spanning multiple cities — including their best-known restaurant, Michelin-starred (and “World’s Best” restaurant winner) Eleven Madison Park in New York, as well as branches of the NoMad in New York, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas; multiple NoMad Bars; pop-ups in Aspen and the Hamptons; the fast-casual Made Nice restaurant; and a couple yet-to-open places.
Eater NY reports that there are are no plans to cease operations in any of the open or in-the-works restaurants; they are stepping away from a Lower East Side events space, but that appears to be unrelated to the break up.
When the front-of-house star and chef call it quits, they’ll be breaking up one of the most impactful partnerships in modern restaurant history. Follow along:
