10 Years of Marriage at Eleven Madison Park, NYC

A tribute to New York City's culinary traditions, fine dining when it counts, and 10-plus years of loving food—and each other.

Anyone who knows us knows we don’t, for several reasons, make a habit of dining at pricy Michelin-starred restaurants. In fact, Scott and I generally prefer to eat at small, hole-in-the-wall-type places that deal in unpretentious homemade food—like many of the restaurants found in our Queens neighborhood, for example. But certain occasions call for a real culinary splurge, and our 10-year wedding anniversary was definitely one of them. Tibetan momos, as much as we love them, just aren't gonna cut it for a decade of marriage.

We set our sights high this time. We’d recently traveled to Copenhagen, and while we didn’t have a shot at getting into Noma, we became a little obsessed with the rankings that placed that restaurant at No. 1 in the world for four of the five past years. According to the S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants, we’d been to just one of the top 10 restaurants on Earth—the excellent Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, in London (No. 5)—and here we’ve been living in New York City, home to a handful of top-100 restaurants, for 15-plus years. The highest-ranked in our town? Eleven Madison Park, No. 4.
