How can you say no to a 3 Michelin stars restaurant that charges US$29 for a two course pre fix menu and US$8 for desserts? You can’t.
Background - Jean Georges is one of the four restaurant in New York that has a 3 michelin star rating. Even though Chef Jean Georges was born in Alsace, French, he spent most of his professional career in Asia, hence creating an artful and often whimsical French - Asian fusion cuisine.
Surroundings - The lunch atmosphere was less formal compared to Per Se, it was lively with diners chit-chatting and waiters trooping silently to and fro. Needless to say, the service was impeccable, the waiters were acute and the dishes were served and taken away coherently. Even though the dining room wasn’t exactly spacious, the high ceilings and huge windows panels gave a warm and intimate feeling.
Sea Trout Sashimi Draped in Trout Eggs, Lemon, Dill and Horseradish. I'm totally in love with the presentation of this dish. The trout sashimi was fresh but the horseradish overpowered the dish. What a pity.
Tomato salad garnish with some diced yellow bell pepper, cucumber and olives.
This gotta be the Best Dish! Foie Gras Brulee, Rhubard Huice, Pineapple Raisins and Sichuan Peppercorn! The ingredients and technique used in this dish is impeccable. Kudos~
