wastED New York

For three weeks in March of 2015, Blue Hill restaurant in Greenwich Village temporarily reinvented itself as wastED, a pop-up devoted to the theme of food waste and re-use.

wastED’s menu took root in the overlooked byproducts of our food system, drawing ingredients from farmers, fishermen, distributors, processors, plant breeders, producers, restaurants and retailers. We also worked with more than twenty guest chefs to curate daily specials.

Below is a list of individuals and organizations who contributed to the pop-up. We are particularly grateful to Garrett Ricciardi and Julian Rose of Formlessfinder, who partnered with wastED to reimagine the design and feel of Blue Hill restaurant.
