I figure whatever they do, they'll keep their stars from NYT and Mich, because neither will want to be seen demoting them for eco-consciousness. I could even imagine Wells giving them a glorious four-star reappraisal for his return to starred reviews. 

They'll do good business for a year or so, between curious returners and the usual tourist star-collectors. And I imagine if (when) they find there aren't as many repeat customers as in the past, because people just aren't quite willing to throw down $350/pp for garden-variety (har har) ingredients, they'll start offering a couple non-plant "EMP classics" like the duck as (exorbitantly priced) supplements. Unless his vegan girlfriend plans on underwriting it as a vanity project forever.

He's grabbed our collective attention, no?    Getting more press and interest than were he to simply reopen.   He'll win the same one-timers as have kept him relevant in the past.   Kind of like buying a statement dress that you wear for one season.

But what you have to understand is that they’ve been doing the same thing every two years or so since they took ownership from Danny Meyer.

And the press keeps biting. 

Exactly, hence my metaphor of fashion,  But by definition the press has no choice but to find things to chew.
