"Best Restaurant in the World" to Go Vegan
In New York City,  a restaurant called Eleven Madison Park had been called the best restaurant in the world. Michelin gave it three stars and the NY Times gave it four. Dinner cost $335, and reservations had to be made months in advance.  Having closed during the pandemic, Eleven Madison Park is going to reopen with a change in menu: It's going vegan.  This was big news in culinary circles last month.  The change is expected to have a ripple effect on other restaurants around the world.
