Date Night: Eleven Madison Park, New York City

eleven madison park

On a recent degustation trip to New York City, Eleven Madison Park was our favorite. They treated us like rock stars. We felt like high rollers P. Diddy and Lady Gaga all one. From the food to the service, Eleven Madison Park, you took our breaths away. Words hardly begin to describe this extraordinary dining experience so we’ll leave you with this visual replay…

    Gorgeous food and photos. Just when I think, "wow, that is the best dish," I go on to the next picture and the same thought repeats! Have always heard great things about Eleven Madison, but now you've convinced me to add this to my list of places to go. Great post!

    I went there for lunch on my 60th birthday (from Newcastle, England) and you’re so right – it was totally fabulous. I found the food (such an inadequate word on this occasion) beyond description; now I can show your photos to friends and maybe they’ll believe me at last. Thanks.
