Cuisine:French, Nouveau American. Price: $$$$. Location: .

Now defined by its $195 per person tasting menu, Eleven Madison Park (the work of Swiss chef Daniel Humm) is fast becoming a global destination rather than just one for New Yorkers. Fun also for the bar scene, the aesthetic is sleek and grand, the cuisine is American Nouveau with French influences, and it’s widely known as the best restaurant in New York right now. Humm seems to be trailing the footsteps of culinary greats like Thomas Keller, and everyone seems to be following. Make a Reservation.

“I love Eleven Madison Park.” – George Mendes (Chef/Owner, Aldea)

“There’s nothing in the world better than that lavender-honey-lacquered duck that Daniel Humm does at Eleven Madison Park.” – Ray Isle (Executive Wine Editor, Food & Wine)

“It’s a privilege eating lunch at Eleven Madison Park. That was a fantastic, really fantastical, sort of precise and witty crazy approach to food. Daniel Humm is a genius.” – Ted Allen (Host, Chopped)
