1-11 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10010, USA

Opened in 1998 by restaurateur-extraordinaire Danny Meyer, the restaurant was not an instant hit, rather it tried out several incarnations before fully growing into its potential. Foodies attribute this transformation to the immense talent of chef Daniel Humm, who arrived at Eleven Madison in 2006 and has won every accolade since. Frank Bruni awarded the restaurant four stars in one of his final reviews for the New York Times, acclaimed food writer Alan Richman wrote his final pieces for GQ about the restaurant and Humm took home the James Beard Award for Best New York City Chef in 2010 and the Michelin guide awarded it three stars in 2012.

Eleven Madison is the perfect combination for gourmets who are looking for a big-night-out (or a big lunch out) in a grand setting that is not in Midtown, as Le Bernardin or Per Se are. Strictly speaking, the food is French-inspired, but Humm also dips into molecular gastronomy and in the course of a meal, diners are in for many culinary surprises, especially in the slew of creative amuses that amaze and overwhelm in technique, flavor combination and taste. The wine list is well-edited and service is among the best in the city. The staff at 11 Madison is professional but warm and everyone speaks about food and wine with knowledge and passion that cannot be faked.
