Eleven Madison Park - pretty confused

asdf Oct 24, 2006 02:27 AM

I'm still a young foodie-in-training so please excuse the questions if they seem pretty obvious. I've heard a lot about EMP, and will be going there next week to see what all the hype is about. Skimming through their menus, I'm confused if they ONLY offer a Prix Fixe and 2 Tasting Menus, or do they also offer appetizers and entrees by themselves? Also, if there's anything you wish you could have again, please let me know about it too! Thanks for the help.

    Just a prix fixe or 2 tasting menus. Nothing A la carte.

      There are 3 tasting menus: the Gourmand, the Aquatic, and a chef's seasonal tasting menu which is longer and more expensive.

        I had thought there was a third tasting menu, but checking the website, I noticed the Chef's Tasting is no longer mentioned. (A line about it used to be at the very bottom of the second page.)

          How much is the more expensive one? 2 weeks ago I had the gourmand and it was 120 pp but i didnt see anything more than that.

        this should help... you pick in each category from the menu or order the set tasting... as shown in the example from their web site.

          Presuming you are going to Eleven Madison with another person or, perhaps, a group, note that each tasting menu is only served for the entire table, i.e., everyone has to agree to have the same menu. If you go the 3-course route, I highly recommend the superb duck for two. And the foie gras terrine with its foie gras creme brulee accompaniment is not too shabby either!

            I only have had the Aquatic at Eleven Madison and We enjoyed it! I was jealous though of the table next to me eating the duck!
