No-one comes to The Connaught to save money, but early press reviews on this summer 2017 revamp of the hotel’s ‘second’ restaurant (the slightly less informal one) under star Jean-Georges Vongerichten, are slightly guarded when it comes to the NYC chef’s haute-comfort food here: not because it’s bad, but because £25-£30 is a lot for a pizza or burger, even if the former has truffle on it. (The launch PR also insists that you can now order pizza take-out from The Connaught – go on we dare you…)
Our hotel guests and Mayfair neighbours alike are drawn to our new restaurant, Jean-Georges at The Connaught. Infused with style, energy and charm, it’s ideal for relaxed, everyday dining – from divine breakfasts to laid-back dinners.
World-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings his signature cuisine to London. Eclectic, imaginative menus draw on his love of the city and his experiences in the Far East. Beloved British and Connaught classics stand alongside South-east Asian flavours, crafted from fresh-from-the-market ingredients and farm-to-table produce. And to drink, there are carefully selected bottles from The Connaught’s extensive wine cellars, alongside our famous cocktails.
The reinterpretation of classic styles jumps from the plate to the surroundings at Jean-Georges at The Connaught. Interior architect John Heah has transformed our distinguished dining room into a contemporary neighbourhood restaurant. Stained glass accents by artist Jean-Michel Othoniel add to the vibrant mood, which dazzles from day to night.
World-famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten manages and operates 32 restaurants worldwide. Inspired by his travels, Jean-Georges is constantly developing fresh concepts and evolving as a chef and restaurateur.
