Jean Georges - Lunch

Jean-Georges Vongerichten is "one of the most celebrated chefs on the planet." He was born in the Alsace in 1956 and now resides in the United States of America. Vongerichten commands a global empire of restaurants that includes venues in London, Paris and Shanghai, as well as New York.

In March 1997, Vongerichten opened Jean Georges restaurant in the Trump International Hotel and Tower, earning a four star review from The New York Times less than three months after opening, and the "Chef of the Year Award" from John Mariani at Esquire magazine. Jean Georges Restaurant remains one of 4 restaurants in the city awarded four stars by the New York Times and three stars by the Michelin Guide.

Frank Bruni of The Times said it offers “accessible elegance,” providing “classic French indulgence with a contemporary flair.” The restaurant trades “the richness of traditional French cooking for a different kind of intensity,” he added — it eliminates “thick sauces and embraces oils and broths, preferring them for their lightness and for the way they release their scents, like the perfume of lemon grass that rose from a bath of Asian herbs and seeds around a delicately baked lobster tartine.”
