Swiss-born cook Daniel Humm was awarded his first Michelin star at 24 and became executive chef at Eleven Madison Park in 2006 when the restaurant was owned by Danny Meyer. In 2011 Humm with restaurateur Will Guidara took over ownership with the iconic restaurant recipient of numerous accolades, including three Michelin stars and last year held the top spot on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. Make It Nice, their hospitality group currently includes Eleven Madison Park as well as operating the restaurants at the NoMad hotels in New York and Los Angeles and the fast-casual restaurant Made Nice.
