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 a tasting-menu-only format, and dishes are kept miminalist, 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, its most recent incarnation a focus 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.
