Jean‑Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean‑Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Awarded four stars by the New York Times and two Michelin stars, Jean‑Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. The local farmer’s market is the driving force behind the seasonal, ever‑changing menu. Chef Jean‑Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean‑Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul‑Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor‑to‑ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience.
