The menus for all the fixed-price three meals are short but consist of the kitchen’s best. Highlights include tuna tartare and avocado in a ginger marinade; foie gras and madai crusted with nuts and seeds in sweet and sour jus; foie gras brule, asparagus with morel mushrooms, matai fish and squab; the amuse bouche (salmon sushi with a fried cheese, and a truffle potato ball with truffle cream); Delicious Scallops accented with light crispy parsnips. The dessert menu includes Vongerichten’s signature dessert — molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. But while food menus at the Shanghai restaurant aren’t necessarily lengthy, the wine list is extensive with over 500 bottles, tilted towards American and French vintages
Note that the entrance to the restaurant is on Guangdong Road. The dishes are of decent portion and designed such a way that few fell on the low note – with the peaks and valleys in order. Jean-Georges is a breath of fresh air.
