I inhaled deeply and stepped back. I wanted to gaze at the french cuisine restaurant Jean-Georges before entering. My driver had just bid me adieu as I said bonjour to Jean-Georges.
The grand entrance !🙌🏾🤗😀.
We walked in and were greeted by the gold plated restaurant sign and wonderful front desk attendant. I checked in for my brunch reservation and they walked my guest and I to our table. Once seated we were assigned waiters who were attentive without being overbearing, knowledgeable without drowning us with information. They were a perfect balance and I appreciated them for that.
They ensured that we not only felt welcome but also that we felt at home. They kept our glasses and plates full and even offered to take pictures! At first we had concerns Jean-Georges would not provide a filling dining experience because the first few courses were very light; however after experiencing all of the courses my opinion changed. The food leaves you feeling satisfied without feeling like you have overeaten.
While you’re there I recommend you have a taste of the tropical dessert. It was heartily recommended by the waiter and after one bite you’ll understand why. To be specific, the Tropical is a combination of young coconut semifreddo, fresh tropical fruit as well as pineapple sorbet lime curd.
If you pair that with some chocolates and coffee or tea you’ll truly feel as if you’ve reached heaven.
I am constantly asked about the best places to dine in whiles in New York City and Jean George’s is now on my top three. You can book reservations online or by phone– (212) 299-3900.
Be sure to dress classy for this Slayers !!!😉.
