I started a thread above about the best place to eat within a reasonable distance from where I am in Madison. Someone recommended that I just catch a flight and make the trip to New York since I have never been there before and that I should try to get reservations at Eleven Madison. It is supposedly the best restaurant in New York and the USA for that matter as well.
Well, I looked up flight prices and it is about a $400 four hour flight from Madison to New York. They said it is worth it but they also said I should try Alinea in Chicago as well. My question to you native New Yorkers is is Eleven Madison really worth the expense that I would have to go through?
If so, I was thinking fly out there and during the day eat the most exotic ethnic foods that New York has to offer that I can't find back home in Hawaii and then eat at Eleven Madison for dinner. Then head to the airport and return to Madison. What do you all think? Thank you!
