Overview

Eleven Madison Park is one of New York City's most popular fine-dining establishments, and one of only a handful to receive four stars from the New York Times.

ELEVEN MADISON PARK is sure to be one of the most talked-about cookbooks of 2011.

Editorial Reviews

Shortly after Manhattan's Eleven Madison Park opened its restaurant door, a newspaper noted that the eatery "needed a bit more Miles Davis." General manager Will Guidara and executive chef Daniel Humm took heed, posting the dozen words most commonly used to describe the avant-garde musician: Cool, endless, reinvention, inspired, forward-moving, fresh, collaborative, spontaneous, vibrant, adventurous, light, and innovative. Those words might stand as the motto not only of this New York Times four-star restaurant, but also for this imaginative, 384-page cookbook. Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook contains recipes, essays, and fine food photographs by Francesco Tonelli. Strong production values; designed to be giftable.

Eleven Madison Park is the perhaps most beautiful restaurant in New York . . . a fitting backdrop to Daniel Humm's spectacular modernist cuisine, which has just received its third Michelin star. The restaurant's polish and flair are reflected in Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook, a sleek white behemoth with a silver-gray typeface and luscious photographs by Francesco Tonelli.

The restaurant's crowning achievement . . . may well be this, the jewel-like Eleven Madison Park cookbook, certainly the most beautiful cookbook released in 2011. It will look great sitting on the top shelf of your cookbook collection, alongside the cookbooks from Noma, the French Laundry and Alinea.

Grant Achatz
"Eleven Madison Park is currently one of the most elegant, delicious, and creative restaurants in the country, and the reason for that is the leadership and vision of Chef Humm. He has done what many of us in the culinary world aspire to do: craft an experience that tastes delicious, that is extremely creative, and most importantly, very personal. That is what has made him a leader in the industry and Eleven Madison one of the best restaurants in the United States."
Thomas Keller

"Chef Daniel Humm has clearly made Eleven Madison Park a culinary destination, continuing to evolve and develop his own personal style. His book elegantly captures the refinement and focus that have always been a hallmark of his cuisine."

Daniel Boulud

"For those who haven't had a chance to visit the restaurant, Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook is the next best thing. The pictures in the book are about the size of a plate, and while you might not be able to taste or smell the food, the beauty of the photos will sort of make up for it."
