JoJo Restaurant Review

: JoJo on the Upper East Side was the first restaurant in chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's culinary empire (which includes his flagship Jean-Georges). As his many fans know, the Alsace native is a master of cooking with Asian spices, infused oils, vegetable juices and exotic vinaigrettes. Using a minimum of butter, cream and flour, he creates vivid dishes. After more than a year of renovations, JoJo features a fresh, lighter look with blonde wood and a turquoise rug. The menu has also transitioned from French fusion to more of a farm-to-table focus, though daily specials still highlight classic dishes such as foie gras and green peppercorn terrine, haricots verts and lemon zest salad; seared scallops, parsnip, passion fruit and brown butter; and steamed black sea bass, carrot confit with cumin and orange.
