“Gastronomic heaven awaits” at Daniel Humm’s “unforgettable” American dining room opposite Madison Square Park that “titillates the imagination” with a “whimsical” tasting menu and “superb” wine pairings ferried by “exceptional” staffers in “gorgeous” art deco quarters; even given “luxury-car-payment” prices, admirers affirm this “once-in-a-lifetime” experience “should not be missed.”
Eleven Madison Park takes reservations 28 days in advance, and if you are hell bent on having dinner here—which is completely reasonable, given the three Michelin Stars and countless accolades—call 28 days before you want to dine. When chef Daniel Humm bought the restaurant from his boss Danny Meyer in 2012, he scrapped the a la carte menu and replaced it with an elaborate $195 tasting menu, which was originally met with glares and frowns from critics. But the noise has since subsided, and the palatial dining room with views of Madison Square Park is the same is it always was: packed with pretty people, visitors from around the world, and plenty of corporate expense accounts.
Humm tailors his menu "to each individual" (which he probably should for $195 per person), combining world-class auteur cooking with New York character. Everyone talks about the sturgeon, which is smoked tableside, but the poached lobster (served with escarole and almonds) and the glazed sweetbreads (served with hazelnut, fennel, and pear) are the best way to get the most out of your culinary splurge. Like any restaurant that brings sticker shock, it's all about the experience—and at Eleven Madison Park, the service is friendly and impeccable, and the food is otherworldly.
