Eleven Madison Park, recently crowned the "best restaurant in the world," is moving — for the summer, at least.
The interior of the three-Michelin-starred resturant, located at the foot of New York City's Madison Square Park, has barely changed since it opened 20 years ago. Now, Chef Daniel Humm and business partner Will Guidara are ready for an overhaul.
Starting June 9, the restaurant will move to a new summer location in the Hamptons while its dining room and kitchen are redesigned back in New York City.
Before the temporary relocation, Humm and Guidara are having some fun, serving up an 11-course retrospective tasting menu highlighting signature dishes from the restaurant's history.
Below, take a look at the award-winning food, along with the years the dishes were introduced to the menu. The dishes appear in the order they are served on the tasting menu.
