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. ―Moira Hodgson, The Wall Street Journal
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.―Joe Satran, Huffington Post
"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." ―Lauren Torrisi, ABCNews.com
