Switzerland native Daniel Humm keeps humming along at Danny Meyer's Eleven Madison Park. Humm's market-driven preparations are refined and precise, while wine director John Ragan deploys an upbeat and informed perspective to wine service. Eleven Madison Park feels totally in sync, with the dynamic leadership completely respected by the rest of the staff. Set in a towering Art Deco-influenced room, servers confidently flow through the dramatic space; their cordial and precise tempo reflects the principles solidified by the methodical and thoughtful minds of Humm and Ragan.
