Always a welcoming destination for world-class meals, this holiday season Jean-Georges will pull out all the stops, celebrating every one of the upcoming and anticipated holiday moments with an exciting combination of expansive décor, festive activities, and specially curated delectable seasonal holiday menus.
Renowned Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and his talented team bring a Thanksgiving dinner to remember, whether your celebration includes two or 20 guests. Begin with parsnip soup with coconut and an endive, apple and pear small plate, then go on to a spectacular Nantucket Bay scallop and black truffle tartare, and finally sample a delicate grilled octopus dressed in Guajillo vinaigrette. All that for starters, then go on to the main course, with choices that include slow baked salmon, Maine lobster, honey nut squash ravioli, beef tenderloin au poivre and the traditional roasted turkey, this time stuffed with foie gras truffle chestnut. For dessert, enjoy a selection of pumpkin, apple cranberry or butterscotch pecan tarts, and more.
