NYC: Jean Georges (Apr. 2012)

October 18, 2012 1 comment

Authors: Victor and Monty
Restaurant: Jean Georges
Exec Chef: Jean-Georges Vongerichten

Date: April 2, 2012
Dinner (Spring Tasting Menu)

Victor’s Note: I forgot the menu, so I’ve filled in the descriptions with what I remember.

Monte’s Note: This meal was amazing for its memorably distinct flavor profiles. A lot of the different flavors were very bold and concentrated, which revealed superb ingredients as well as fantastic cooking technique. Also, a psychological plus was seeing Jean-Georges there himself surveying the dining room like a pirate captain making sure the ship is upright. And yes, the ship runs very smoothly and is in great shape.

Jean Georges Lunch Part 2

Yes this is part 2 since this is the second of two recent trips to Jean Georges for lunch. Think of this as a Tarantino influence (yes yes I know he borrows ideas but I still like his movies).

The JG flowers are really interesting and I’ve never seen anything like them before. Like a sun bursting out from the heavens. Or, actually, the flower on the left reminds me of the insides of a fig. Figs are yummy (in retrospect I’m surprised my fig reminiscence didn’t lead to me eating the fig-lookalike…sounds like something I’d do). Click to see the actual food!
