Eleven Madison Park is a fine dining restaurant located in the heart of New York City. The restaurant overlooks one of the most beautiful parks in Manhattan, Madison Square Park, and sits at the base of a historic Art Deco building on the corner of 24th Street and Madison Avenue. Located here since 1998, it just underwent a full-scale renovation and redesign.
The restaurant has been owned by Chef Daniel Humm and Restaurateur Will Guidara since 2011 and during that time it has evolved considerably, both in food and experience. Today, the restaurant offers an eight to ten-course menu in the main dining room, but guests can also visit the bar for a more abbreviated tasting menu, some light snacks, or simply for a cocktail or glass of wine.

02/ Culinary Science
Beautifully presented and well-prepared dishes. Fresh savory ingredients that are full of complex and balanced flavors. Wonderful creativity involved that enhances the experience. The highlights were the halibut, lobster, seasoned marinated duck, and foie gras covered in pumpkin seeds.
