About Jean-Georges Vongerichten

Though Jean-Georges Vongerichten is one of the world’s most famous chefs, his skills extend far beyond the kitchen. A savvy businessman and restaurateur, he is responsible for the operation and success of a constellation of three and four star restaurants worldwide. He made culinary history and developed a reputation as remarkable as his food by tapping his deep understanding of the restaurant world and pairing it with his forward-thinking vision. Yet, after years of success, his favorite retreat is still the kitchen, and his favorite meals dished from a street cart in Thailand.

Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Sizzling shrimp
$$$, Mexican, Latin American, Tapas, Midtown
"Are you kidding me, this is why i love JG so much. a contemporary fusion of a classic Peruvian and Hispanic dish. Spicy, Hot and crisp with an incredible textural crunch of Madrona Almonds and a balance of sweetness with Finger Bananas. Good enough to lick the bowl…"
Sugar snap pea salad
$$$, Happy Hour, Modern, Full Bar, New American, Midtown Manhattan
"Peas and parmesan—who would have thought? I adore this dish and always dream of ordering more than one when I sit down next to the open kitchen and chow down. So seasonal, fresh, and nurturing yet bright."
Perry St. fried chicken
$$$, Modern, Full Bar, Breakfast, New American, West Village
"Chef Cedric Vongerichten (son of one of the greatest chefs in the world!) really elevates fried chicken with this refined take. When I had it, it was with sautéed English peas, mint, and a Scotch bonnet sauce. I love the kick of the Scotch bonnet peppers."
