Jean George at the Connaught Hotel

When we heard Jean George was coming to London we all rushed there. Most of us had been to his famous restaurant in the Trump Towers in New York. And in our view Jean George, NY is even better than the revered Eleven Madison Park in New York. So we couldn't wait!!

As you can see from the photos they have redecorated the space beautifully, with great lighting. A very warm and comfortable space to spend your evening in.

Jean George has gone for a more American style comfort food menu, done very well! As opposed to the fine food Michelin Star restaurant next door Helene Darroze. See the menu below:

The Tuna Tartare was absolutely fabulous and a very generous portion, probably the best Tartare we have had. Unfortunately the Truffle Burger is a bit of a let down if you are expecting a truffle flavour. The hint of truffle is so unnoticeable that we even had to ask the waiter where the truffle was!! Apparently its in the mayonnaise somewhere !! The Parmesan chicken was also nice, it felt like home cooking. And the Roasted Cauliflower is very good. However the desserts are very interesting. We tried the Milk dessert above which was nice by completely shadowed by the incredible show stopper Candy Floss. You really have to set your camera on video because it is a real marvel, with the candy floss disintegrating to reveal, well something very revealing need it say more !!!!

All in all it is comfort food cooked very well like Pizza, Pasta and Burgers. We have now been there several times and love the luxurious but informal space. However we just feel that it does not live up to its New York sister restaurant. And there are such great restaurants in London now, for the price we tend to go for more elaborate Fine Food.
