JoJo, New York

JoJo( 1 star Michelin) is the first and the oldest restaurant of the famous chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten in NY. And, it is not typical for the sleek Upper Eastside. The boudoir style interior and the crystal chandeliers create particularly mysterious mood.

I had dinner there last night and I have double feelings about this upscale bistro. We waited for about fifteen minutes till somebody came to us with the menus and the service was quite lousy. Plus, I didn’t like at all my appetizer (it was not eatable) which was soft shell crab tempura. But, then, again, I loved my entree which was codfish and the dessert was also excellent (passion fruit pavlova).
