The 90s are back and so is JoJo—famed chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s first New York restaurant. Like the very best face-lift, this transformation has rid the space of its former fuddy-duddy feel and replaced it with a fresh, contemporary backdrop that beckons moneyed residents.
Good taste never goes out of style and diners hoping for a little culinary nostalgia will be rewarded here. The menu isn’t groundbreaking (think: roast chicken and Maine lobster) but it is very well executed. The kitchen’s daily menu invites patrons to enjoy a different classic nightly, though some dishes including the Peekytoe crab dumplings, are always on offer. Just one bite of the luxurious molten chocolate cake and memories of Y2K will come flooding back all the way.
