Le Bernardin

vs

Eleven Madison Park

Eric Ripert’s inventive French seafood menu at Le Bernardin has pleased countless critics for over two decades. Danny Meyer’s American fare at Eleven Madison Park in the Flatiron district is praised for impeccable service and presentation. Le Bernardin’s sedate wood and glass aesthetic isn’t as impressive as Eleven Madison Park’s art deco allure and views of Madison Square Park.

    Eric Ripert is more likely to be globetrotting than preparing the orange vinaigrette that tops your warm lobster carpaccio, but seasoned staff knows its way around the fruits of the sea.
