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.

"We were enthralled with our first visit and brought friends to share the experience. We were there 6:15 on an Aug. weekday, so there many summer-retreat families, including many children, resulting in a bit of a hectic feel in the ambience and service. I was disappointed with the lamb chops, which weren't cooked rare as ordered and the sauce overwhelmed the chops spices and herbs. The chicken one of our friends ordered was plunked on a plate and looked naked; he said it tasted good. The other two people were delighted with their meals, one had the pork chop and the other had hake. From when we were there previously, I remember the service being more gracious and the meal including amusee bouche and cookies at the end."

wd~50 offers fine dining in a casual atmosphere on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The restaurant is open for dinner five nights a week from 6pm to 10pm, and offers two tasting menus: twelve courses for $155, and five courses for $90 featuring classic dishes from past menus. Bar diners can enjoy either tasting menu or select two courses from the menus (sweet or savory items) for $25; additional courses can be added for $15 per course. We no longer offer an a la carte menu. Wylie Dufresne, Sous Chef Sam Henderson and Pastry Chef Malcolm Livingston II serve modern American cuisine renowned for its flavor, sophistication, and innovation. The dining room seats 70 and the private dining room 14 people. wd~50 has a Michelin star and in March of 2008 was awarded three stars by Frank Bruni of the New York Times.<br /><br />

"Were it not for a price of $155 per person--there is a $95 option for fewer dishes--plus $95 for a uniformly superb wine pairing, we expected almost perfection, and were a bit disappointed with a couple of the dishes. Overall, this was an exceptional adventure in the latest chemistry-style cooking. There were too many dishes to list them all and they're listed on their web site. I would only highlight that the Black Bass was possibly the best piece of fish I can recall eating, The service was gracious, helpful, well informed and non-intrusive. The decor, while minimal, is tasteful and non-distracting. Overall, a delightful experience that we would hope to repeat once they get settled in their new location, wherever that is, in the Fall."

"We enjoy returning to this neat, quiet, clean super food--mostly, sometimes. The corn soup and Mussels were superb. The peeky-toe crab salad was disappointing this time: bland, and the hanger steak was merely OK, with a non-nondescript taste-less vegetable under the steak. The restaurant is superbly located for Lincoln Center and is a pleasant alternative to the other restaurants nearby, which are usually more crowded and noisy."
