A one hour, cinema-verité portrait of Danny Meyer, arguably the most successful restaurateur in America. We follow the creation of Eleven Madison Park and Tabla during the hellish eleven month construction process in 1998. Meyer imparts his business and restaurant philosophy while trying to keep his cool. Jumping to 2009 we learn how the restaurants have evolved, EMP receiving a coveted four stars by The New York Times. This doesn't have the trumped up drama of a reality show. It is real.
The film was created by Roger Sherman of Florentine Films, who has won two Oscar nominations, a Peabody and an Emmy.
