Jean-Georges is a french restaurant in Four Seasons Jumeirah Dubai, open by the Michelin starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten in 2015. We came here for late lunch during working day and the venue was almost empty and quiet. Sitting in the end of lounge area gave some privacy and a good view.
Food was very good and generous portions, despite of the expectation of “french minimalism” 🙂 We have ordered salad – warm shrimp, avocado, greens, champagne beurre blanc dressing – enough to share for two. Mains – roasted cod and mushroom risotto. Fish was gently roasted and juicy. Special appreciation for the risotto. I`m a big fan of risottos and its difficult to surprise me with this dish, but at Jean-Georges I simply loved it. Tender rice well cooked in a creamy sauce stuffed with lot of mushrooms, it was not heavy at though.
Dessert menu provides a choice of after-lunch drinks and sweet delights. I enjoyed the cheesecake with cranberry sorbet and green tea.
Overall experience: Gorgeous french restaurant with amazing food, but without excess paphos.
Recommended: lunch with colleagues,friends or family, romantic dinner, pre-party dinner, desserts, wine evening.
