I wanted to have one mini splurge meal in New York so my friend suggested lunch at Jean-Georges. It has 3 Michelin stars and the 2-course lunch is only $48! (it used to be $38 only).
I’ve been to Market by Jean-Georges in Vancouver but this restaurant in New York is the group’s flagship restaurant.
very minimalist decor…
For the 2 courses, there’s a choice of more than 20 dishes!
Started off with a trio of amuse bouche, which I forgot what it was…. but I remember it having an Asian twist to it..
spinach or melon soup???
Santa Barbara Sea Urchin, Black Bread, Jalapeno and Yuzu…mom picked this… the Yuzu covered any seafoody taste of the urchin.. very fresh!
Yellowfin Tuna Ribbons, Avocado and Spicy Radish, Ginger Marinade…. Dad and I both ordered this as this was a signature dish..very fresh tuna and the sauce used paired really well with the fish (better than just plain soy sauce and wasabi)…
black bass, crusted with Nuts and Seeds, Sweet and Sour Jus…. the parents both ordered this… i had a bite.. the fish was extremely tender and the skin was so crispy..
Seared Salmon, Cherry Tomatoes, Crispy Rice, Miso-Yuzu Broth… when I ordered this, the server mentioned that the salmon would be undercooked.. and this is why the salmon tasted to tender. The fish didn’t have a strong taste since it wasn’t concentrated miso but miso broth. I also liked the different in texture of the accompanying tomatoes, tofu and crispy rice.
We decided to order 2 dessert samplers ($12 each)
Fig Financier, Raspberries, Ginger Syrup and Spiced Fig Jam, Soft Chocolate, Almond Milk Sorbet)…
White Chocolate Ice Cream, Yuzu Sorbet, Warm Chocolate Cake, Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
FAIM? OUI OUI!!!!
