Eleven Madison Park, New York (August 2012) [1]

I hope the fact that I’ve been to EMP almost a half-dozen times in thirteen months obviates the need for another lengthy write-up.* I’ll let the pictures do the talking on this one and will simply provide the Cliff’s notes below:

Food: world-class
Highlights: the smoked couscous, the mosaic of foie gras and the smoked corn (but honestly you cannot go wrong here; just about anything they put in front of you will be revelatory)
Service: world-class
Pr(return): 1 (at this point a jaunt to New York without a trip to EMP just wouldn’t seem right)

*If, however, that is of interest, see my June meal here
