Eleven Madison Park (3/5)

Located in the Flatiron District of Manhattan, in the art deco Metropolitan Life North Building, Eleven Madison Park is widely considered a world-class dining experience. Nothing so blasé as the word “restaurant” would ever begin to describe this epicurean delight. As with other establishments in New York that are a cut above the rest, do not expect your typical à la carte menu here. Guests are honored with an ever-changing tasting menu that features the purest, freshest ingredients and is founded upon Executive Chef Daniel Humm’s imagination and creativity.
Eleven Madison Park not only has the distinct honor of a prestigious location; it also has been honored for both its culinary masterpieces and its service to patrons. Included in the awards are La Liste, Grand Chef Relais & Chateaux, the James Beard Foundation Award, the Wine Spectator Grand Award, and a very impressive Zagat rating of 28 out of 30. This ranking gives the establishment the highest-ranked status in the Flatiron District and marks it as one of the best restaurants in New York City. Obviously, it is well worth the visit; reservations are necessary.
