Like Madonna, celebrity chef Jean-Georges has no need for a last name (for the record, it's Vongerichten). The chef first grabbed headlines back in 1987, when his molten chocolate cake sparked a worldwide dessert craze. Decades later, Jean-Georges remains a dependable source of culinary innovation, now at his namesake flagship. The dining room, which occupies the first floor of the Trump International Hotel at the southwest corner of Central Park, has kept apace with contemporary tastes, too. A 2011 revamp by Danish interior designer Thomas Juul-Hansen added a modern neutral beige-on-cream palette and wrapped loveseats and armchairs around well-spaced, white linen–draped tables. The result focuses diners' attention not on the interiors or even the artfully plated dishes coming out of the kitchen, but on the expansive park views out the floor-to-ceiling windows. There are two seven-course tasting menus to choose from: One comprised of new, seasonal creations (perhaps gulf shrimp with crisp water chestnuts, and squash, flavored with saffron and chipotle); the other of tested classics spanning the chef's career (notable is a Lobster Tartine with peas and a lemongrass and fenugreek broth). A two-course lunch for $38 is a more wallet-friendly way to dine at a restaurant with three Michelin stars — though diners with hearty appetites may crave larger portions. Even if you go at lunchtime, be prepared to adhere to dress code. Jackets are required for men, and no jeans, sweatshirts, or sneakers are allowed.
