What are the desserts like at Eleven Madison Park?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

The desserts at Eleven Madison Park are made to complete chef Daniel Humm’s innovative tasting menus. Like the savory courses, the dessert menu changes frequently, but there are a few things you can expect to find during your visit. Needless to say, we recommend you save room for these showstoppers.

The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant overlooking Manhattan’s Madison Square Park is known for its esoteric ice cream flavors — think cornbread, salted caramel, popcorn or brown butter — complementing more substantive treats such as a gourmet blueberry cobbler, a chocolate-caramel torte, chocolate ganache with chestnut honey and a chocolate-peanut butter tart, respectively.

You’re likely to find a range of petits fours, such as macarons with vanilla or strawberry ice cream layered between them, as well as a cheesecake made with sheep’s milk yogurt. The desserts tend to follow the seasons, so when fall brings its changing colors, look for desserts like the mouthwatering sweet potato beignet.
