Art and music are two of the unexpected ingredients that fuel the culinary success of chef Daniel Humm, winner of the James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef. As proof, look no further than the kitchens of his two top-rated New York restaurants, run with partner Will Guerrara. For Eleven Madison Park, Chef Humm selected classic Miles Davis prints ("so cool, fresh, innovative and collaborative"), while the more raucous Rolling Stones photos preside at NoMad, which he calls "our looser, louder sibling."
