Though it may vary by the evening and the time of year, guests of Eleven Madison Park are often sent packing with petite boxes of housemade jellies to enjoy on the walk home. Of course, the end of the meal isn’t the first time you see special gifts from the chef, as the meal includes a bounty of amuse bouches to creatively tease your palate, ranging from an addictive sweetbread pocket and savory mushroom tart to foie gras and jelly on a cracker to bigeye tuna, as well as a playful carrot marshmallow.
These may lead into another fun surprise, such as a tomato lollipop served in a basket of cherry tomatoes. Depending on the evening and the mood of the chef, the freebies — either before or between principal dishes — keep coming and coming at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant.
