Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s French-American Restaurant, The Mark, oozes sophistication, much like some of the upscale spots in downtown Manhattan. Warm lighting with an amber hue, white tablecloths, comfy upholstered dining chairs, and whimsical dinnerware set the scene. The menu varies, offering everything from tuna tartare (a Jean-Georges classic) to rigatoni and meatballs (on the spicy side) and veal Milanese. Imbibe with a frou-frou cocktail at the bar before or after dinner; you’ll surely rub elbows with some of the city’s trendsetters.
The mood at breakfast is more relaxed than the power scene you’ll find in the evening. Get the day started right with The Mark breakfast, a plate of eggs cooked to your liking, potatoes, greens, a side of bacon, ham or sausage, freshly squeezed juice and coffee or tea. Gluten-free almond pancakes, avocado toast, and healthy breakfast bowls round out the morning choices.
