J&G refers to popular French chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. This restaurant combines some of the favorite dishes from his other restaurants in New York as well as simply cooked steak and other grilled items.
Ladies and gentlemen meet the best calamari in the whole wide world. And that’s no exaggeration.The calamari was the crispiest and softest ever. The batter was impossibly light and coated the squid with a delicate and crisp layer. The yuzu (Japanese citrus fruit) dip was just perfect with it.

Sha is the carnivore among us cousin and she proved it by ordering the wagyu sirloin. It was a good choice. It was tender and juicier than Carmela’s peppercorn steak.
10 oz. Snake River Farm Wagyu sirloin $49
La and I ordered the pre-theater menu which had a starter, entree & dessert for $35 and was available from 5:00-6:30 pm only. We ordered all the choices so we could share and try it all.
I was actually still full from lunch so I chose the lighter options. It was my first time to try a savory watermelon salad and I must say I loved it! The tangy goat cheese complemented the sweet and refreshing watermelon.

La chose the sweat pea soup to start with. My first taste reminded of the wheat grass juice that I drink everyday. It tasted so green. But after a while the flavor mellowed on my tongue and I appreciated the complex flavors. The soup was topped with a delicious Parmesan foam.

For my dessert, I chose the sweet, sweet strawberries with yummy meringue and topped with a scoop of sour cream-poppy seed sorbet that was tangy and creamy. My dessert was the perfect end to my meal.
