Eleven Madison Park to Open Hamptons Pop-up During Renovations

All summer, Eleven Madison Park will be closed for renovations. While this is not ideal from a business perspective, it’s even less promising for the employees who would have been out of work for an entire season. Luckily, EMP Summer House will be debuting in June in the Hamptons and the EMP staff will be working on Long Island all summer long. The restaurant will be collaborating on a “number of unique experiences. American Express members will have first crack at getting a seating during the pop-up, but you could possibly get lucky with a walk-in spot if you are willing to pay cash.
