Eleven Madison Park
New York NY 10010
Like many of the finer things in life, Eleven Madison Park seems to get better with age. Although it 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 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 here: 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. The results are unique.

- tdmstaff "There's always some version of foie gras in the dinner tasting menu, and the Union Square hospitality folks will not disappoint - it usually involves a velvety sauce for a melt-in-your-mouth flavor extravaganza."
A vibrant place to do business and a sensible choice for the family. See the review of this American Nouveau restaurant at 11 Madison Ave. in Manhattan.

Try the Boulevadier. Fantastic!!!!!
The bar is a hidden gem! Striped bass was exquisite, impeccable service.
Excellent food. Artisanal. Smallish plates, and a bit expensive, but worth it.
Must try the seared foie gras!
Try the Quail Egg On Brioche - Served with apple tea and a thyme sprig ...:) (via @Foodspotting)
