Jean Georges *

"Explore JG Vongerichten's signature vibrant cuisine
and develop a love for aromatic flavours of the East.
With an impressive three-star Michelin training, 
the food is guaranteed to impress."

As the elevator doors slide open, a sign is illuminated before us. 
Reminiscent of a painting from Picasso's cubism era
- JG's distinct trademark. 

Already impressed, yet I have not even entered the dining area!
Walk through the small archway into a grand auditorium.
Trendy decor 
with high ceilings; 
big round tables enough to seat for twelve, but only set for two; 
encompassed by circular lounges; 
and peer through the window panes to see all the commotion along The Bund.

Abandoning the traditional use of meat stocks, and instead, features intense flavours and satisfying textures from the use of vegetable juices and fruit essences, light broths and herbal vinaigrettes. Innovative ideas that have adapted to and impacted on the global culinary landscape.
