Swiss-born chef Daniel Humm is an idea machine. At Manhattan's Eleven Madison Park, he received the kind of accolades every chef dreams of. Then he and his business partner and creative collaborator, Will Guidara, decided to take a risk and rethink the whole experience. Today, Eleven Madison is as much about drama as phenomenal food: a carrot tartare ground table-side, a table-top clambake, a liquid-nitrogen cocktail served in the kitchen. At the NoMad, Humm also produces showstoppers like a whole chicken for two packed shamelessly with truffles—perhaps the most luxurious roast chicken in America.
