What does it take to get models to eat a restaurant meal during Fashion Week? Four top-notch chefs and one celebrity model backing. For the second year in a row, Elettra Wiedemann is opening a pop-up restaurant, Goodness, in the Museum of Arts and Design’s Robert restaurant.
This year, Wiedemann convinced heavyweight chefs Mario Batali, Alain Allegretti, Julian Medina, and Leo Forneas to head the restaurant’s kitchen for one night each, from February 11 to 14.
She told the Daily Mail that putting together that impressive lineup was simply a matter of knocking on the chefs’ doors and introducing herself to them — which is apparently all it takes to convince people to cook for you if you are a famous model and the daughter of Isabella Rossellini.
