JoJo offers relaxed yet elegant dining on two floors of a quaint, turn-of-the-century brownstone on the Upper East Side. The first of Jean-Georges’ restaurants in New York City, this neighborhood gem opened in 1991 to rave reviews. It was voted best new restaurant of the year by Esquire magazine and has retained its three-star status from the New York Times for 21 years. Regarding the name, JoJo was Chef Jean-Georges’ nickname as a young boy. Jojo is a hospitable setting for a casual dinner, special occasion, or private party. Guests can feel comfortable in jeans or in evening attire. The contemporary French menu still features some well-loved original dishes, including the Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake.

"Although went for Restaurant Week, saw full menu and found that prices although "high" were not outlandish; i.e. I estimated an a la carte meal would be about the same as the price fixed meal at one of my favorites (Le Perigord) - about $65 excluding alcohol, tax and tip. Small tables -- groups larger than 6 would not (in my opinion) be comfortable -- more would require several small tables placed to make a large rectangular one (rather than round). Service good and friendly. food extremely good. Although not "kid friendly" there was a child (maybe, age 10) and an infant present. They did not disturb us."

Opened in 1979 by world famous restaurateur Michael Chow. MR CHOW started in London in 1968 and continues to enjoy generations of devoted clients from art, fashion, music, and entertainment. Recently awarded the 5 Star Diamond Award by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences for its excellence, service, and cuisine this restaurant described by Givenchy as a "Precious Jewel Box" is one of the most beautiful restaurants in New York City serving high Chinese Cuisine with impeccable service. <br />The menu at MR CHOW is a combination of old authentic Beijing, Original Recipes, and the signature dishes such as Chicken Satay, MR CHOW Noodles, and Ma Mignon. MR CHOW also serves one of the best Beijing Ducks in the world.<br />The famous nightly handmade noodle show is presented in every location since the opening of London in 1968. <br />"Elegant Midtown Chinese and its newer TriBeCa sibling offer “big-league” eats in “welcome-to-the-’80s” digs..." - ZAGAT <br /> <br />

"Asked for quiet area away from bar. Seated next to noisy bar. Tables too small for four. It was Restaurant week - four menu choices. Water "pushed" to have us take the four items and share. We probably would have, but felt not given option to do otherwise - not even for dessert. Served first two courses rapidly - hardly finished appetizers when we had entrees, Some pause before dessert. Also, don't know if would have been option, but most restaurants offer full menu in addition to the RW specials."

"Would recommend as "adequate and reasonably priced if one wants to have leisurely meal without feeling pressured to turn over the table. Service was very laid back (which was fine for our group of 6) and adequate although long time for first course and between courses in this rather small restaurant. Staff friendly and -- a good point -- we did not get bill until we asked for it."
