Although Eleven Madison Park opened to much fanfare and subsequent acclaim in 1998, it was Danny Meyer’s hiring of Swiss-born Daniel Humm to helm the kitchen in 2006 that elevated the place to the level of the finest restaurants in the country. Humm — who has won such plaudits for the restaurant as four stars from The New York Times (more than once, most recently by Pete Wells) and three from Michelin — bought Eleven Madison from Meyer in 2011, in partnership with his front-of-house counterpart, Will Guidara, and didn’t miss a beat. The chef is firmly in control: While Humm will tailor his single $225 multi-course tasting menu to accommodate allergies, dietary restrictions, and ingredient preferences, there is no à la carte selection or smaller menu available. The particulars of the dishes change frequently, but the technique is contemporary French and modernist. The ingredients are heavily New York-based, and the culinary traditions on which the food is based are often those of Gotham street or deli food, producing notably unique results.

I think Eleven Madison is my favorite restaurant in the city, chef Scott Conant told us in his New York Diet. The lobster lasagna is awesome and the milk-and-honey dessert is just delicious.

Let Daniel and Will blow you away, you're in great hands. Make sure to ask to see the kitchen, they'll make you a "cocktail" at the observation table in the back.

At this four-star gem (the jewel in Danny Meyer's crown), notice the three large oil-paintings by Stephen Hannock, which are based on 1900s black-and-white photos of neighboring Madison Square Park.

An oasis of civilization: you no longer have to choose between an excellent drink, excellent food, or a place calm enough to have a conversation. Pricey but absolutely worth it.

I want to live here. Everything about this place is perfection. Allow 4+ hours for dinner, and go with the duck for your main course.

You've probably never had caviar on cream cheese, with bagel crisps and slivers of Lower East Side pickles on the side. You can find it here. Welcome to New York!

We love the beauty of it all: the Art Deco room, the windows overlooking the park, the exquisite food, the impeccable service, and the surrounding scene of classy New Yorkers.
