Please visit our website to learn more about The Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-Georges http://www.theinnatpoundridge.com/<br /><br />Chef Jean‑Georges introduces his latest venture, a casually elegant restaurant ensconced in the picturesque town of Pound Ridge, New York. Here, Jean‑Georges cultivates a truly seasonal, farm-to-table cuisine, with ingredients sourced from the Hudson Valley and New England, whenever possible. Constructed in 1833 as a residence and serving later as an inn, the building has been painstakingly renovated to preserve as many of the original materials as possible, including four working fireplaces. Thomas Juul-Hansen designed the restaurant’s interior with a modern yet rustic sensibility; zinc and marble accent stone and reclaimed wood. The restaurant’s lighting, artfully conceived by Hervé Descottes, employs paper shades and Edison fixtures to create warmth throughout.

"Its ok to show up in your jeans at this JG restaurant. It has a warm, comfortable and casual but elegant feel. This is our second meal here and it did not disappoint. The wait staff is extremely knowledgeable about the food preparations and ingredients as well as the beer and wine offerings. Calamari, tuna, peekytoe crab, pizzas, salads, fish, pork chops all were luscious There was not a starter or a main we have ordered that disappointed - except the burger. Although it was so very tasty it was gone in four bites. A kids portion..... We will continue to return."

Jean-Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Consistently awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars, Jean-Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. Chef Jean-Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean-Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul-Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience. Jean-Georges offers a three-course prix-fixe menu and two six-course tasting menus: a traditional tasting of the chef’s signature dishes, and a seasonal tasting featuring fresh market ingredients.

"The food at JG is exquisite, the service impeccable and the experience of your special occasion will be memorable. It will be however an outrageously priced memory. As always JG offer a choice of prefix menus. You can pick and choose amongst the courses and there is flexibility to your choices by course. Each bite was luscious from the peekytoe crab dumplings to the tuna and the truffle pasta ($60 supplement) to the char and the lamb ($20 supplement) and on to the desserts. It is my opinion that if you are going to offer a prefix at $128 pp include what is available within the price range of the prefix. It's almost insulting to have supplemental charges added to your choices. Note to restaurant - I sat through our special dinner staring at a small vase of a single flower that had dead leaves on it. Really?? How tacky. Perhaps before dinner one of your waiters can pop around the corner to the market and you can spring for a few fresh flowers....."

Multi-Level Italian Restaurant offering two private dinning areas, outdoor seating and an intimate low ceiling bar.<br />Painted white and blue with dark wood and chrome accents, the space suggests a small yacht cruising around the Isle of Capri.

"The venue is intimate and you can converse and actually hear one another without shouting! Our calamari and tuna appetizers were delicious. The branzino and lamb dishes perfectly prepared. Desserts were better than average especially the coconut bread pudding which was outrageous. We couldn't figure out what wine to pick so we told the waiter what we liked. The one he selected was perfect. The service was impeccable. Don't be shocked when you get the bill - it is very pricey!"
