Creating unfettered excitement throughout the New York food world, Jean-Georges is the latest restaurant from star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Adam Tihany has designed a softly lit, highly polished, austere room as the setting for show-stopping contemporary French cuisine that borrows elements from the chef's earlier successes, Jo Jo and Vong. An emphasis on flourish and fanfare is employed in service. Highlights include asparagus with rich morel mushrooms; Arctic char baked with wood sorrel; and Muscovy duck steak with sweet and sour jus. Memories are made of the chef's $85 tasting menu. Focusing on new French meals, this is a fine dining restaurant. Expect the average entrée to cost over $30, and there's a prix-fixe menu at $85 per person. Plan to dress business casual.
