Now Open – Jean Georges at The Connaught
This week saw the opening of the new Jean Georges Restaurant at The Connught. The eclectic, imaginative menus are inspired both by Jean-Georges’ experiences of the Far East and his signature use of South-east Asian flavours, whilst also featuring his distinctive take on British and Connaught classics, from fish and chips to traditional afternoon tea, influenced by his earlier working life and love of London.
Sourcing the best of British ingredients, the menus will also reflect the simple farm-to-table, fresh-from–the-market approach long pioneered by Jean-Georges, and found at his restaurant at The Mark and ABC Kitchen in New York. Illustrating the way The Connaught balances its distinguished heritage with a passion for the new, the restaurant has been redesigned by contemporary interior architect John Heah. Wall-to-ceiling windows, accented with stained glass, create a light, vibrant mood that reflects the appealing colours served on the plates.
