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.
