Food Porn! : Eleven Madison Park

Had to share. This is one of Frank Bruni's final restaurant reviews for the New York Times before he retires from the field. I like the way he writes about the progress of Eleven Madison Park over time; he touches on the fact that while restaurants used to get better the longer they were open, now the amount of scrutiny and publicity surrounding openings means that often, they're putting their best foot forward during the first few months. But once that circus moves on to a new opening, the still relatively new restaurant starts to slide.

Not the case at Eleven Madison Park, apparently. Take a look at this audio slideshow and see if you don't start googling cheap flights to New York, just to have the chance to eat there. I ate breakfast not an hour ago (lovely currant tea scones out of the Gourmet cookbook) and I'm sitting here wiping drool off my chin.

My mouth always water when I visit your blog. It's SO not fair! I can't wait to have a big industrial kitchen so I can start cooking more often. Sounds divine....

This is my FAVORITE RESTAURANT EVAR. Each course is more delicious than the last. Tres pricey and thus special-occasion-only in my world, but my oh my.

I need that poached lobster NOW.

The change of chefs definitely helped move that progression along...though I will say the original roast chicken was kick-ass, and the homemade potato chips were insanely addictive. But now it's much more than an American brasserie; it's heaven. I was so thrilled for them when this review was published.

It's great!!! Visit Madison Restaurant Review to see a Madison metro area site with detailed reviews and pictures with at least 1 new restaurant review each week.
