    Are there any options to recover the file? It was a brand new file, not an existing opened file.

    Far from here

    MS Office 2011 has an "autosave" feature. It makes a backup every 10 minutes, by default.

    You should be able to access the saved file by the Excel "File" menu : File / Open recent.

    If you don't find it there, you can search the file in your User Library at :

    your_account/Library/Application Support/ Microsoft/Office/Office 2011 AutoRecovery

    To access the (hidden) User Library : Finder / "Go" menu, press the Alt key to reveal the Library in the list.
