I’ve been wanting to come here for such a long time. A modern sexy restaurant in New York, set overlooking the Hudson River Park. It oozes New York relaxed elegance. Jean – Georges has managed to pull off the perfect mix of French and Asian influences to create a tranquil restaurant but punches you hard with flavour. A absolute joy to visit. I cannot wait to return.
When entering the restaurant we were greeted by a stunning lady, who addressed me by name and handed us over to another wonderful woman, who guessed we were from London. Began some lovely small talk while escorting us to our booth for the evening. Very spacious and comfortable.
I began with a Raspberry-Lychee Bellini, which was bloody delicious. So much so I had to have two. The Mr just had a simple beer. No fizz for him this evening. But after drinks ordered and our brilliant waiter began to serve us this is where the real fun began, as the sun set gloriously over the Husdon river the restaurant came alive. And so did our table with incredible food.
The highlight of the night for me was a Rice Cracker Tuna starter. This blew my mind, the flavour was like nothing I’ve ever tasted and the texture was pure genius. Mr had the Crispy Calamari, which was tasty also. I then followed up with Butter Poached Lobster and he went for the Perry St Fried Chicken, which was super tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.
I loved this place, and it’s always great to find somewhere new to try in my favourite city. You lucky New Yorkers you . Tres jealous.
