Jean Georges

1 Central Park W. , Trump International Hotel
New York , NY , United States

The innovations that empire building chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten brought to haute cuisine in the Nineties—pan-Asian influences, using light broths and oils instead of heavy French sauces—have reverberated around the food world, but the chef’s flagship restaurant is still a remarkable place for a meal. Vongerichten’s dishes use plenty of classic French ingredients (foie gras, sweetbreads), but he’s brilliant at making them feel fresh again, by adding a finely calibrated mix of Asian-style herbs, spicy notes and splashes of citrus. Dinner is a three-course tasting menu (the soups and raw fish dishes are must-orders); the three-course lunch for $32 at the attached café Nougatine is one of Manhattan’s best values.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

A hyper-elegant dining room overlooking Central Park is the setting for Jean-Georges Vongerichten's globally-influenced cooking. Though the wold-famous chef has opened more than a dozen restaurants around the globe, this is his flagship.
