Profile

It’s probably true that in his relentless campaign to scale the heights of the all-powerful World’s 50 Best Restaurants list (which it finally did in 2017) and to attract the international clientele and cachet that come with it, Daniel Humm has sacrificed some of the essential, everyday local character of this famous downtown restaurant. It’s also true, however, that great chefs, like great athletes, have a sweet spot in time when they’re at the height of their powers, and, whether dabbling in the newfangled realm of veggie burgers or the intricate reimagining of ancient comfort-food favorites like eggs Benedict, no chef in the city is more consistently in the zone these days than Mr. Humm. The restaurant’s once almost comically long tasting menu has been pared down to a more manageable size, and and that was before the restaurant closed in 2017 for a total revamp. They overhauled the dining room, the kitchen, all of the serviceware, and the restaurant’s $295 tasting menu. Humm’s food has been trending toward hyperminimal for a while, and the new menu feels like a natural evolution of his style, with all the superfluous garnishes and gimmicks completely stripped away. (Some classics, like the celery root cooked in pig's bladders, are still served albeit updated.) If you’re looking for a more local, less time-consuming (and more modestly priced) dining experience, the small bar is one of the great unsung cocktail (and, with a small à la carte menu, dining) destinations in the town, and if you ask politely, the kitchen might even whip up a taste of the chef’s famous lavender-flavored roast duck to go with your old-fashioned or glass of Champagne. 

Weddings

This 1920s Art Deco building boasts two private-party enclaves overlooking the main dining room (up to 110 guests), which features terrazzo floors and original light fixtures. The Madison Square Park vista, as seen through the nine-foot windows, is just as memorable as chef Daniel Humm’s elevated French fare ($135 per guest).


Ideal Meal

Oyster, sturgeon sabayon with chives, scallops with caviar and pear, lobster with leeks, roasted duck.
