“This is why we have continued to build upon our relationship with Eleven Madison Park and Chef Humm to bring this unique dining experience and special access to our Card Members this winter at the EMP Winter House in Aspen.”
As a more casual outpost of New York’s iconic Eleven Madison Park, EMP Winter House in partnership with American Express will offer an à la carte menu inspired by Chef Daniel Humm’s upbringing in Switzerland. The menu will feature dishes such as Smoked Trout Toast, Veal Schnitzel, and Fondue, as well as an extensive wine list with over 250 wines. In addition to the daily dinner menu, the restaurant will offer a lunch menu on weekends, as well as an Après Ski menu with seasonal snacks and beverages each afternoon.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with American Express again to launch the first-ever EMP Winter House in Aspen,” said Will Guidara, restaurateur and co-owner of Make It Nice. “After two consecutive summers in East Hampton at EMP Summer House, and with the opportunity to tap into Daniel’s Swiss roots, it was a no-brainer to bring the experience to an exciting winter destination and Aspen is the perfect place to do it.”
Echoing Guidara’s sentiments, Chef Daniel Humm shared that “Each creation on the EMP Winter House menu hits so close to home for me personally. To be able to share these dishes with guests as they dine in Aspen is incredibly special.”
In addition to being the only form of credit card payment accepted at EMP Winter House, American Express Card Members will also get exclusive access to reservations at EMP Winter House. Card Members can make reservations for tables in the indoor dining room, or private large format dining experiences in a newly constructed Yurt Village, located in the restaurant’s courtyard. American Express, Will Guidara, and Chef Humm have also curated exclusive experiences and events for Platinum Card® Members as an extension of Humm’s participation in the American Express Global Dining Collection. The first being a By Invitation Only event on December 14th to celebrate opening weekend by giving Platinum Card Members a first look and taste of the EMP Winter House before it opens to the public.
“Like our Card Members, we are passionate about dining and are proudly supportive of the culinary industry,” said Chris Cracchiolo, SVP, Global Benefits and Loyalty at American Express. “This is why we have continued to build upon our relationship with Eleven Madison Park and Chef Humm to bring this unique dining experience and special access to our Card Members this winter at the EMP Winter House in Aspen.”
