Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten reopens his Philadelphia restaurant with a new menu and new Chef de Cuisine, Cornelia Sühr.
It’s been two years since Jean-Georges Philadelphia closed its doors due to the impact of Covid-19. Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten announced the reopening on March 10, of his largest, and highest restaurant with an elevation of 1,000 feet, in partnership with Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia at Comcast Center. Appointed as Chef de Cuisine in the summer of 2021, Cornelia Sühr will command the kitchen, who, in collaboration with Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, has created a unique and engaging immersion into the dining experience.
The reopening will include a new menu that will feature two new $198 per person, six-course tasting menus. One menu “featuring delights of the land and sea, and one menu exclusively of the earth.”
If you are a fan of Jean-Georges’ Egg Toast and Caviar, and Yellowfin Tuna Ribbons… Don’t fret as they remain but are joined by new items such as Pennsylvania-raised duck, fresh trout from the Poconos, Yuzu from regional farms, bread made with stone ground flours and whole berry grains from Pennsylvania mills. You will also enjoy the infusion of locally distilled bourbon and locally grown elderflower.
Further enriching the experience, a champagne trolley will be about, offering rare labels of the bubbly by the glass or bottle, as well as an à la carte wine and spirits menu that spotlights locally-based providers of spirits.
Reservations are required (30 days in advance) for Jean-Georges Philadelphia, which will be open 5:30 pm- 9:30 pm, Thursday through Saturday.
