In a nutshell

JG Kitchen is supposedly the more "casual" chic cafe by Jean Georges restaurant. What the menu has to offer is indeed more casual than what you would get at Jean Georges Dining room, in a more casual setting as well, but is it worth the price? or the hype? I'm not so sure. 

the mood

Chic casual setting with a hotel lobby kind of vibe.  

the food 

JG Kitchen offers a tapas-like menu - sharing is definitely recommended. Highlights include: 
- Burrata with sorento lemon jam
- Crab toast with lemon aioli
- Tuna tartare with ginger marinade
- Snapper ceviche
- Wagyu cheeseburger
One thing to note: their pizza oven was not working that night and we couldn't try their very famous truffle pizza. Stay tuned for an update on this post.
