Luxury, precision, and creativity are the driving forces at this internationally renowned restaurant overlooking Madison Park. Swiss-born chef Daniel Humm oversees the kitchen, concocting unexpected dishes that change often. It's entirely prix-fixe, and dishes are kept minimalist, giving Humm and company maximum latitude to work their magic on the plate. Not that they're resting on their laurels and accolades: the restaurant seems to reinvent itself when you least expect it, and its most recent incarnation focuses on elevated versions of classic New York fare. Think cognac-doused, truffle-sprinkled foie gras and Sichuan peppercorn–encrusted duck. Reservations should be made two months in advance.
