Eleven Contemporary Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Eleven Contemporary Kitchen unleashes a sophisticated, urbane energy. The airy, two-story dining room boasts plush banquettes, artist-designed tables, warm earth tones, good lighting and quality materials, particularly wood. The open kitchen generates buzz, as does the inviting lounge area with its large, green-onyx-topped bar, topnotch cocktails and extensive bar menu. Upstairs are private rooms and an outside balcony with serious heaters. An elevated, glass-enclosed wine room heralds an ambitious wine program; selections are global, with first-rate options in wines by the glass. Executive chef Derek Stevens focuses on seasonal ingredients and innovative yet approachable preparations. The restaurant's stated mission is to deliver "complex flavors simply prepared." The menu changes frequently but count on a line-up of American farmstead cheeses and charcuterie, steaks and an array of well-prepared seafood. The glass-walled pastry kitchen pops out fresh bread and comfort desserts, such as peach pie with frozen goat’s milk yogurt. For the ultimate experience, sign up for the Chef's Table Tasting Menu.
