NoMad’s Mamma Leone’s-Inspired Pop-Up Has Already Sold Out Through December

Daniel Humm’s chicken Parmesan for two is “already autumn’s must-have dish,” according to the New York Post

Daniel Humm and Will Guidara of the three-Michelin-star restaurant Eleven Madison Park and the NoMad teamed up again to create Mamma Guidara’s, a weekly pop-up at the NoMad Bar “inspired by long-gone tourist trap Mamma Leone’s,” according to the New York Post, which declared Humm’s chicken Parmesan as “autumn’s must-have dish,” despite only having debuted last weekend.

The pop-up seats approximately 130 and has already sold out into December. There is, however, a waiting list and more dinners are being added.

The four-course $68 prix-fixe menu begins with a “slightly sweet, house-made semolina loaf and an antipasto plate of salumi, cheese, and cauliflower dressed in olive oil, tangy herbs, and spices,” followed by Caesar salad, baked clams, fried calamari, and meatballs. The chicken cutlet is available in Parmesan, marsala, and piccata style, and the meal ends with tiramisu and cannoli.

The original Mamma Leone’s served food “based on Southern Italian immigrants’ adaptation to American ingredients and colder weather,” and was said to have “pioneered the Italian restaurant for non-Italians” in Paul Freedman’s book, Ten Restaurants That Changed America.
