The first time I came across JG was when I stayed at The Mark Hotel in New York in 2014. I simply loved the ambience and style of the restaurant. The Mark Hotel is known to attract all leading fashion and business names and I feel JG has brought that charm to The Connaught in Mayfair. The Connaught is one of the most exclusive yet understated properties in Mayfair. The new restaurant is the perfect morning and evening getaway. I love trying breakfasts at all kinds of hotels as it helps me understand their offering beyond the wine lists. Personally I find breakfast to be more a more upbeat and stylish affair than dinner. It sets the tone for the day. The interiors and art ((i.e. the menu card) at Jean Georges at the Connaught is colourful, playful yet understated. The stained glass is my favourite part! It gives you a very different perspective on the surrounding neighborhood.
The service is attentive and are trying to ensure guests get the best experience of JG’s outpost in London. There are healthy options for breakfast such as acai bowls and smoothies but I would also recommend indulging in their pastries – they are small after all! Prices are reasonable and the coffee – what’s not to like?
If you are looking to impress someone with something new in Mayfair – this is the place to go!
