Jean-Georges at The Connaught 22

Squaremeal Review of Jean-Georges at The Connaught ?

Jean-Georges Vongerichten's French-Asian fusion restaurant Vong, at The Berkeley hotel, was a huge hit in the 90s - and one of the most missed restaurants in London since closing in 2002. After a rare misstep with Spicemarket at the W Hotel, the New York-based Alsatian chef is back at The Berkeley's sister property, The Connaught. The curving space that was formerly the hotel's Espelette restaurant might still have the feel of a breakfast and afternoon tea rendezvous but the food is far more adventurous than the rather bland setting suggests. Playful luxury is a running theme on the menu - silky egg yolks sandwiched between caviar-topped brioche toast, lobster partnered by a crispy fried squash flower stuffed with prawns, or a gooey pizza of Fontina cheese and black truffle - and the ingredients top notch, whether firm tentacles of grilled octopus arranged cruciform-style or a salad of big, sweet prawns dressed with Champagne vinegar. Exquisite-looking desserts should not be missed, although the spectacular-looking candy floss creation is easier to Instagram than it is to eat. Service is as deferential as the hotel setting demands, and the final size of the bill the only intrusion of reality into a delightfully escapist confection.
