Eleven Madison Park
Danny Meyer certainly has a knack for finding talented chefs to place at the helm in each of his hit-parade spots, and Eleven Madison Park is no exception. Says Daniel Boulud, “At Eleven Madison Park. Chef Daniel Humm is a great young talent to keep your eye on.” Take his advice.
Bill Buford agrees: “Eleven Madison, which, in addition to a great chef in Daniel Humm, has one of the most comprehensive, idiosyncratic, and fair-priced lists of French wine in the city.” Humm’s precision and execution of a dish is as pure as it is pretty.
The sophisticated simplicity of his seasonally changing menu combines the sometimes unexpected into a balanced melding of flavors that make you want to sing to the 35-foot-high ceilings. The beautiful, landmarked Art Deco building adds an extra aura of drama to the whole experience, with terrazzo floors and Madison Square Park right out the windows.
