Dinner at the extraordinary Eleven Madison Park

Last week, I went to dinner at the extraordinary Eleven Madison Park, located at 11 Madison Avenue in downtown New York City. Eleven Madison Park, which opened in 1998, is a Danny Meyer restaurant, the famous restaurateur known for his impeccable hospitality.  A few years ago, Mr. Meyer brought Chef Daniel Humm on board and together they transformed this already distinguished restaurant into what restaurant critic, Frank Bruni, of the New York Times, recently has deemed New York City's newest four-star restaurant.

My dinner companions were Laura Slatkin - founder of Candela Fragrance and Candles, her SVP of Marketing and Sales - Seungah Jeong, and Hannah Milman - my Executive Editorial Director.  While enjoying our fabulous meal, we discussed fragrances at great length.  Please enjoy these photos taken at the restaurant and try not to get too hungry.  Also, be sure to watch the new season of my television show beginning on Monday, September 14th.  The fabulous Chef Daniel Humm will be appearing on that day!
