Eleven Madison Park consistently bags a spot on top restaurant lists. Frankly, we’re not surprised: this revamped poster child of modern, sustainable American cooking is also one of only five NYC restaurants sporting three Michelin stars. Insane attention to detail, intense creativity and whimsy are all trademarks of chef Daniel Humm's approach.
After a revamp, it's now more accessible than ever thanks to the addition of dining tables in the bar. Here, an abbreviated tasting menu (five rather than 10 courses, for $175) can be had, or select mains (around $50) from the core tasting menu. Reservations – for both the main dining room and bar tables – open on the first of the month for the following month. Dress to impress.
