Eleven Madison Park

I’m beyond thrilled to be back at Eleven Madison Park only a few months after my last visit. This time around, we made an early reservation at 5:30pm, which was perfect for me… my photos came out so much better with all of the natural sunlight! :) I loved being able to see every detail of the each dish — they are true works of art. The presentation is simply stunning! We enjoyed a few of our favorites from last time (the clam bake, picnic basket, carrot tartare, duck, and egg cream) and experienced a number of new seasonal dishes. Some of the standouts for me were the foie gras brulee with summer berries and beets, poached striped bass with zucchini and squash blossoms, sea urchin snow with smoked cantaloupe and conch, and the lobster salad with tomato and lettuce. The service was impeccable, as always. Yet another extraordinary dining experience at EMP!
