He's opening an informal all day restaurant at The Connaught this spring, and we'll update this piece when we've got an opening date.
This isn't Vongerichten's first London restaurant. His last London foray was the pan-Asian restaurant Spice Market at the W Hotel in 2011, which though buzzy sadly closed at the end of last year. He's better known for his residency at The Berkeley, between 1995 and 2002.
Jean Georges has other lauded restaurants in Las Vegas, Doha and Washington DC.
Although The Connaught's restaurant by Jean Georges still has no name (might it keep its eponymous title?) we know that it will serve farm to table produce, and be informal, unlike other Connaught restaurant Helene Darroze, a fine dining affair, with two Michelin stars.
Jean Georges restaurant will take over the spectacular conservatory at the front of the hotel, a famous sight at this exclusive Mayfair bolthole.
Opening date in April: not yet confirmed Time: all-day dining, though times are yet to be confirmed Price: upper-end
