At age 14, Swiss-native Daniel Humm quit school to pursue his culinary dreams. It would have been a rash move, had Humm not been so damn good. Humm's talent materialized quickly, and the chef was awarded Michelin star while still in his 20s. Humm's early accolades, particularly a four-star review of San Francisco's Campton Place caught the eye of restaurateur Danny Meyer, who appointed Humm to his iconic space at Eleven Madison Park. Under Humm's direction, Eleven Madison scored its first three star review, and Humm has since become co-owner of the classic establishment, ensuring it's place among the top of NYC's dining game.
