Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
My birthday, as it does every year, just came around. And while it means I get another year older, it also means I get to have a blow out meal and hit one of the high-end restaurants I wouldn’t dream of going to the rest of the year.
This year, it was Jean-Georges, which recently received a second round of four stars from the New York Times. Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten is one of the city’s most lauded restaurateurs with a range of restaurants around town. His namesake (and one of the few I have not been to) is in the Trump Tower just across from Central Park.
It’s a little different from most haughty French fine dining restaurants since the chef adds some international (mostly Asian) twists to the refined food. Also, service at these types of restaurants often strike me as stuffy, but the young lady who took care of us was genuinely helpful, considerate, and without any pretense. Along with the food, it made for an excellent birthday meal.
