Eleven Madison Park in New York triumphed Wednesday in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, becoming the first U.S. establishment to win the top spot since 2004. Here’s what a lunch time meal at the restaurant looks like. Interestingly, lunch and dinner cost the same at $225 per person. No menu is handed out when you’re seated. Everything served is from an extended tasting menu where everyone pretty much gets the same thing.
