About Us

At Made Nice, we set out to create a restaurant we would want to visit every day of the week. A place where food is delicious and approachable, where service is warm and focused, and where the atmosphere is inviting, energetic, and fun. Our roots are in fine dining, our team is built from the kitchens and dining rooms run by Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara of Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad.

And while many of our recipes originate from those restaurants, Made Nice is different. We’re a counter-service restaurant, a casual spot for a quick sit-down meal, or to grab-and-go, and we believe that no matter what you join us for, it should be delicious and paired with great hospitality.

Welcome to Made Nice.

INSPIRATIONS

Shepard Fairey

As a world-famous artist, Shepard Fairey could easily exhibit his work in museums across the globe, but instead he chooses to display them on buildings and street corners to reach the masses. 

Shepard Fairey is an American artist born in Charleston, S.C., who rose to fame with his 2008 “Hope” portrait of Barack Obama. Fairey attended Rhode Island School of Design where he created the “Andre the Giant has a Posse” sticker that transformed into the OBEY GIANT art campaign; with imagery that has changed the way people see art and the urban landscape. His work has evolved into an acclaimed body of art that has shown in museums, galleries, and institutions around the world.

In addition to his guerrilla street art presence, the artist has executed more than 75 large-scale painted public murals around the world as of 2017. 

Jon Batiste

Jon Batiste is one of the most talented jazz musicians of our time, but he's always loved performing in intimate venues more than on stage or in amphitheaters. His love of connecting this his guests has always inspired us.

Jon Batiste is a globally celebrated musician, educator, bandleader and television personality whose musical skill, artistic vision and exuberant charisma make him a triple threat with unlimited potential. 

Recognized for his originality, jaw-dropping talent and dapper sense of style, Jon transitions from commanding the piano with virtuosic skill to soulfully crooning to wailing on the “harmonaboard” (a kind of harmonica and keyboard) to curating unique “social music” experiences all over the world. Born into a long lineage of Louisiana musicians, Batiste eventually went on to receive both his undergraduate and masters degrees in piano from the Juilliard School and formed his band, Stay Human.
