Eleven Madison Park, New York (August 2012) Vegan Tasting Menu

I had the inestimable privilege of dining at EMP with two friends, one of whom is a vegan. Below are photos of almost everything brought her way over three-plus hours along with a sample of her thoughts on the food and the service.
On the dining experience: “it was unreal,” “I’ve never experienced anything like it,” “pure delight”
Food: “I cannot be more impressed”
Highlights: smoked couscous, roasted eggplant, lemon caviar, vegan egg cream, chocolate dessert, smoked corn, and lemon thyme-infused tomato tea
Service: “amazing”
Glass of Rosé
Tomato tea with lemon thyme

  1. Nice to see the NY focus at EMP. And vegan tasting at a Michelin 3-stars restaurant is ground breaking. How did they make the vegan cheesecake?

  2. Thanks (though the photos cannot compete with yours)! With or without the lemon caviar, I trust you'll have a wonderful dining experience–looking forward to your review and photos!
