In Aspen, Humm and Guidara will winterize the menu and vibe for
the Sno-Cat crowd: Think schnitzel and crispy potato rosti, as well as a consomme that will undoubtedly appeal to bone broth aficionadoes. And there will be cheese fondue, including a luxe version.
” Sometimes, we do a fondue, and when it’s almost go, we crack in a couple of eggs and shave in black truffles. It’s one of the most insane things ,” says Humm, a native of Switzerland.” I will insist that we do that in Aspen .”( If you suffer a craving now, Humm has masterminded a special
Sunday night fondue dinner series at the Nomad in New York through March 18 ).
Most of the menu will be determined by the location, which has yet to be confirmed, though it will be in Aspen proper , not a auto ride away.” The vibe will be more or less Swiss, depending on the place ,” says Guidara, who says the opening date will similarly be predicated on the space:” It could be just before Thanksgiving; it could be December .”
According to AmEx’s Janey Whiteside, EMP is one of the card’s most requested restaurant reservations.

EMP’s relationship with American Express Co. is also continuing. As last summertime, AmEx is the only card that will be accepted for payment; reservations are available via the card’s concierge service and at
empsummerhouse.com and are available only to card holders.
” When we came to the end of last summer, we said,’ We’ve got something here; we need to bring it back somehow ,'” explains Janey Whiteside, an AmEx executive in charge of the relationship. She won’t share figures but considers profit in the prospect of a Winter House that widens Amex’s work with the EMP team.” Aspen is a top winter destination for our card members. But our relationship with Will and Daniel is much bigger than simply the summer and wintertime homes. We’ve been their partner for a long time. EMP has been one of the most requested restaurants in the world from our concierge service .”
