The table settings at Jean Georges are punctuated by a square plate that’s emblazoned with the restaurant’s logo. The raised surface acts merely as a fancy placement for your in-coming dishes, and is set over a crisp, perfectly-pressed white tablecloth. All plates and bowls are white and wide to better set off the colors and architecture of the food. Shimmering silverware is heavy and feels good in the hand. With each course, you’ll be brought a new set of silverware — the cut and heft of your forks, knives and spoons meant to complement your meal. A flat, dull knife and spoon comes to help you with your fish, while a chicken breast bathed in butter calls for a more serrated edge. At the end of the meal, a white, eggshell-thin coffee cup holds hot drinks, giving your culinary experience an elegant conclusion.
