The restaurant is completely free of any other culinary direction than that of the city it lives, breathes and operates in. It is not French, Italian or Modern American. It is New York. Then, now and tomorrow.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
Kalle Bergman, restaurant reviewer and editor in chief at Honest Cooking Magazine, today published a review of the famous Eleven Madison Park restaurant in New York City, in which he awards the restaurant the maximum six stars out of six.
He writes "-At Eleven Madison Park, much of your dinner will be a surprise. You choose four dishes, or rather four ingredients, from a list of 16, and Chef Daniel Humm will add 10 additional dishes to that. Exactly what he will add, remains a secret until the dishes are actually served."
Mr Bergman is impressed with the level of cooking at Eleven Madison Park, and describes one of the dishes "-The sturgeon sabayon with chive oil is absolute decadence. Served in a faux egg shell, it's one of those dishes that you want to never end, even if deep down, you know it is perfectly dimensioned. It is so rich, so velvety and so deep. More would have been too much, and less would have been way too little. How lovely."
Before handing out six stars (the maximum number of stars awarded) to Eleven Madison Park, he concludes that "-A meal at Eleven Madison Park is more than the sum of the individual dishes. And eating at Eleven Madison Park is eating New York City. The restaurant is completely free of any other culinary direction than that of the city it lives, breathes and operates in. It is not French, Italian or Modern American. It is New York. Then, now and tomorrow."
