Internationally renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has opened his new restaurant, Jean-Georges at The Connaught, in one of London’s most distinguished hotels in the heart of Mayfair.

Complementing The Connaught’s elegant blend of past and present, the restaurant features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Mount Street enhanced by French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel whose series of stained glass, sunlit windows  represent the different stages of the day from sunrise to sunset. French graphic designer and illustrator Jean Jullien’s whimsical touches on the eclectic menus add to the ambience.

Inspired by Jean-Georges’ classic French training and signature use of Asian flavors, the menus feature his distinctive interpretation of British classics ranging from fish and chips to traditional afternoon tea influenced by his earlier experiences in London. Sourcing the best of British ingredients, dishes reflect the simple farm to table, fresh approach long pioneered by Jean-Georges as presented in his New York restaurants at The Mark, ABC Kitchen, and The Mercer Kitchen in the heart of Soho.

Jean-Georges at The Connaught will serve breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner throughout the day, seven days a week. Reservations can be made at +44 (0) 207 107 8861. Hélène Darroze will continue to operate her two-Michelin star restaurant on the other side of the hotel.
