New York City’s Eleven Madison Park wins top restaurant award in Melbourne

New York City’s Eleven Madison Park was voted best restaurant for 2017 at the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards in Melbourne. The New York City establishment is only the second restaurant outside of Europe to win the award. The other one was California’s French Laundry. That restaurant won the award in 2003 and 2004.

Eleven Madison Park got first place by beating out Italy’s Osteria Francescana and Spain’s El Celler de Can Roca. Its prized dish was celery root cooked in pig’s bladder.
