I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a last minute reservation at Eleven Madison Park. Chef Daniel Humm’s 3 star Michelin restaurant is #5 in S. Pellegrino World’s 50 Restaurants 2015 and located at Madison Ave at 24th Street in NYC.
So here was what we had for the night…
what greeted us at our table…
Cheddar: savoury black and white cookie with apple
Morel: Custard with Trout Roe and Mustard Flowers
English Peas : with buffalo yogurt and spring garlic
Radish: with Pike and Nasturtium
Eggs Benedict: Ham, Asparagus, and Caviar
Bread and 2 types of butter
Hudson Valley of Foie Gras: seared, with sorrel, amaranth, and caviar beans
The carrot tartare maker- our server assured us that this doesn’t explode, hahaha!
Carrot: tartare with rye bread and condiments
Lobster: butter-poached , with dandelion and ginger
Asparagus: braised, with potato and black truffle
Star of the show. I really love how they added the lavender
Finger Lakes Duck: dry-aged, with spring onion, rhubarb, and citrus duck jus
Farmer’s Cheese: with honey, rhubarb, and granola
Whey: sorbet, yogurt, milk jam, and milk
Strawberry: Poached, with vanilla and elderflower
Chocolate (by Mast Brothers): Name that milk (game)
You’re supposed to match the chocolate to its source: sheep, buffalo, goat, and cow.
I really enjoyed the salted chocolate pretzel which came with the chocolate bars too.
I couldn’t have this anymore. I thoroughly enjoyed the wine paring and was pretty buzzed already towards the end of the meal. Hehehe.
Had a great time at Eleven Madison Park , service was impeccable!
