Jean Georges

A more detailed account:

Jean Georges offers a six-course tasting menu but I didn't like some of the selections, so I chose to have the four-course prix fixe instead.

My father did order the tasting menu, and most enjoyed the caviar and the lobster:



As for me, I especially liked the the amuse (especially the salmon and ikura) and my appetizer (a shrimp and mushroom dish covered in yuzu foam):



However, I was most impressed by the desserts. There were four options on the menu, each comprised of four small dishes, representing a theme:


My father ordered Spring, my mother ordered Rhubarb, my sister ordered Chocolate, and I ordered Citrus, so we were able to investigate the full array.
