Flawlessly executed French cuisine in Manhattan
The minimalist dining room at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Jean-Georges restaurant defines sexy — it reminds us of an extra-large egg, thanks to the curved white seating, soft round lighting, pale white walls and sheer drapes. Housed inside Trump International Hotel & Tower New York, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant has a soaring ceiling and windows that contribute to the delicate, airy feeling.

But that's as far as your attention will veer from the real star of the show: Jean-Georges Vongerichten's ethereal Asian-influenced French cuisine (lobster tartine with a lemongrass and fenugreek broth; young garlic soup with frog's legs). Vongerichten is a master at layering flavor, making each bite a hit parade of taste — striking you first with smoky, grilled sea bass, chasing it with tartly acidic ruby red grapefruit juice, then following with peppery-sweet caramelized radishes. Savor his flawless technique in a three-course meal or a seven-course procession of signature dishes.
Things to Know
•Guys, when you head out to Jean-Georges, don’t forget to grab a jacket — the restaurant requires one in its main dining room. Ladies are expected to dress for a similarly formal experience.

•If you want to dine at Jean-Georges, we highly recommend making a reservation. As one of the most renowned French eateries in New York City, the dining hot spot suggests making preparations in advance with a phone call or online reservations at OpenTable.

•You can order from the restaurant's three-course, signature or seasonal tasting dinner menus. With either selection, expect plating to be minimal, yet elegant, allowing the essence of the ingredients to shine through.
The Chef
•Celebrated as one of the most talented chefs and restaurateurs alive, French-born Jean-Georges Vongerichten runs five New York establishments apart from Jean-Georges, including JoJo, Mercer Kitchen, Perry St. and The Mark.

•A darling of critics and foodies alike, Vongerichten receives credit for helping reinvent classic French food using fresh juices and light broths rather than heavy butter and cream sauces.
