Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills to feature Jean-Georges restaurant

Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills

Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the acclaimed French chef and noted cookbook author behind several restaurants in New York, Las Vegas, Tokyo and Chicago, is opening his first Los Angeles restaurant at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills.

The hotel and Jean-Georges restaurant, located next to the Beverly Hilton at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard, are scheduled to open in 2017.   

"I'm excited to bring my culinary passion to the West Coast for the first time," Vongerichten said in an email to The Times. "My presence in California will bring a new inspiring culinary environment to life, and I'm delighted to share my creative techniques and evolving fresh ideas with the Beverly Hills community."

Vongerichten, 58, is a native of Alsace, France. His flagship restaurant Jean-Georges, in New York's Trump Hotel, has three Michelin stars; his 14-seat restaurant JG Tokyo has one Michelin star. The chef has also published numerous cookbooks, including "Cooking at Home with a Four-Star Chef," for which he won a Best Cookbook Award from the James Beard Foundation.

The restaurant is to be located on the hotel's first floor, and Vongerichten described it as "contemporary fine dining" with a "menu of inspiring and sophisticated offerings that stem from my global culinary experiences." 

Specific details on the menu are slim, but Vongerichten did say he plans on showcasing California produce and sourcing vegetables, fruit and seafood from local independent farmers and fishmongers. 

Vongerichten's food will be available at the main restaurant and a second restaurant on the rooftop by the pool.
