For a select group of celebrity chefs, the line between the art of fine cuisine and that of an ambitious business mogul is a blurry one. It’s a tough life, dominated by the constant hunt for Michelin stars, new recipes, and restaurant openings… But for one man, it’s all in a day’s work.
Jean – Georges Vongerichten and his constellation of Michelin Star restaurants are ubiquitous in the world of gourmet cuisine. A man with his name attached to over 30 restaurants- and a total of 7 Michelin-stars shared among them- Vongerichten represents this brand new fusion of chef and business mogul to perfection. Always striving to grow his enterprise, the man from Alsace has now turned to The Connaught to open his only London restaurant, the “Jean-Georges at The Connaught,”
Designed by contemporary interior architect John Heah- in collaboration with French artist Jean Marc Othoniel, Louise Bourgeois, and graphic designer Jean Julien- this informal all day dining space overlooks the designer stores and crowds of one of London’s most fashionable areas, Mount Street, through gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows designed by Jean Marc Othoniel.
The eclectic menu showcases Vongerichten’s signature European and Asian fusion dishes. For breakfast, guests can expect healthy morning shakes, scrambled eggs, and French brioche, and of course, the traditional English breakfast spread. Lunch and dinner include crispy salmon sushi and black truffle and Fontina pizza, which for the first time, is available as takeaway.
