After briefly shuttering its doors and opening a pop-up in East Hampton, the world’s best restaurant (which closed immediately after winning the top spot) is back. In addition to the pricey 8- to 10-course tasting menu in the dining room, you can now order a more affordable tasting menu at the bar, which also offers snacks and cocktails (or choose from its 20,000 bottles of 4,000 wines). The seasonal menu is packed with hyperminimalist treats such as two foie gras dishes or a smoked sturgeon cheesecake with caviar. Regulars of the previous iteration will be happy to know that its signature savory black-and-white cookies are back in town.

A lot of expectation, and superb. Innovative, local, and playful menu with well known items prepared in new ways with lots of show and interaction. Highlights included the sunflower preparation, lobster boil and plum for dessert. Excellent pairings, sometimes over the top, but always welcome. Memorable and exuberant with beautiful fresh cut flowers setting a welcoming ambiance.


Often cited as the best restaurant in New York so I'd say it's worth a visit, if you can manage to get a reservation.

Eleven Madison Park, you were quite the expensive meal, but god were you worth it. I was on a hunt for the best restaurants in New York City, and found out this has THREE Michelin stars. I am SO there. You might want to plan ahead, this restaurant is extremely popular and hard to get a reservation. I recommend at least a month in advance. When I went for lunch, the menu changed daily. My sister and I had an 18 course menu (not sure what it is now) and a lunch that was approximately 4 hours, so clear your day. You would think that you wouldn't be able to stomach so much food, but there's so much time and each plate is pretty small. Each plate was fresh, beautiful, creative, and most of all, DELICIOUS. I loved that there were 4 courses of dessert (aside from an amuse bouche). The service was top notch, I felt almost awkward being waited on for literally anything. We did have a special non-alcoholic drink that the bartender made based on our "sweet and fruity" request. It had raspberries, seltzer, cucumber, and mint. All I know is it was the best drink I've ever had, but knowing it was pricey, rationed it out throughout the meals. I found out it's the #2 restaurant in the world and am so glad I went. So get your butts a table quick!


Loved it! The staff was so accommodating and the food was delicious! The card-trick was so fun - great experience


Absolutely LOVED everything about Eleven Madison Park, the food was amazing and the waitstaff were wonderful! This restaurant is definitely worth going to! I definitely would suggest getting the Manhattan drink, as they bring you a postcard with the different variations that have been made and have you pick one. Once you have chosen they bring over the cart and make the drink right in front of you.  My husband loved it! You really can't go wrong with anything you choose here as everything was so good.  


WOW. Just got back from dinner here. Utterly fantastic, special, delicious and fun. The card-trick was great, ther picnic and carrot-tartare ace, the food delicious, sommelier helpful, and the service sublime. We've eaten in many Michelin restaurants, and that was right up there with the best meal we've ever had... Amazing.
