Jean-Georges Philadelphia

Elevated French-fusion fare in Philly

It’s hard to say which brought more excitement to Philadelphia, the opening of the new Comcast Technology Center — the city’s tallest building — or the highly anticipated debut of world-renowned French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s restaurant on its top floor.

Vongerichten has taken fine-dining in Philadelphia to a new level — literally. Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center’s gleaming restaurant floats among the clouds and offers panoramas of the skyline and some of the City of Brotherly Love’s most popular attractions. Stealing attention from the view, however, is Vongerichten’s stellar food.

Known for melding French and Asian flavors, Vongerichten brings his refined fusion cuisine here. Whether dining at Jean-Georges for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you are sure to end up with a taste-bud-tantalizing experience.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Perched on the 59th floor of a skyscraper, Jean-Georges Philadelphia is all about the views. The restaurant boasts 40-foot floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over skyline vistas.
  • The menu pairs inventive new dishes developed just for the Philadelphia restaurant with some of the classics from his New York City outpost. 
  • Architect Norman Foster and artistic director Jeff Leatham designed the space with the vision of bringing the outside in. Mirrors frame the ceiling’s windows and reflect back the setting sun, sparkling night sky and twinkling lights of the city, making for an unforgettable setting.
  • With the Comcast Technology Center offering unprecedented views of Philadelphia, you’ll want as much time as possible to soak it all in. Come to dinner early or stay late to enjoy a cocktail at SkyHigh, the 60th-floor lounge peeks out across the city and overlooks the restaurant.
  • Worth just as much attention as Vongerichten cuisine is Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia pastry chef Danielle Seipp's beautiful creations. Consider the chocolate passionfruit mousse or coconut semifreddo, but if you don’t have the room, take comfort in knowing you will likely be gifted with a complimentary multi-tiered platter of petit fours.

Things to Know

  • On the weekends, SkyHigh heats up with live music in the evenings. You can enjoy it from the tables in the restaurant, but make the most of it by stopping by for an after-dinner drink.
  • The dress code at Jean-Georges Philadelphia is business casual.
  • Reservations are required at the Philadelphia restaurant, but if you can’t get one, consider enjoying a cocktail at the bar (there are no bad seats here) or enjoying drinks and small plates at SkyHigh.

The Food

  • The six-course tasting menus "from the land and sea" and "from the earth" rotate seasonally with options like peekytoe crab dumplings, madai sashimi, and caraflex cabbage with black truffle and dashi glaze.

  • The meticulously crafted à la carte menu at Jean-Georges Philadelphia offers guests an immersive dining experience, inviting them to curate their own culinary adventure.

  • Don’t pass on the opportunity to try Jean-Georges’ egg toast and caviar with herbs. The small, indulgent bite is a revelation.

The Chef

  • Born just outside Alsace, France, Vongerichten began his culinary training under the watchful eye of acclaimed French chefs Paul Haeberlin, Paul Bocuse and Louis Outhier. He then went on to work and travel in Asia, where he developed a love for the local cuisine and began blending flavors.
  • If you enjoy your meal, check out one of Vongerichten’s many cookbooks, like Cooking at Home with a Four-Star Chef, which won him a James Beard Award in 1999.
