That was my first experience in a restaurant proudly caring brand name Chef Jean-Georges. And unfortunately the last. First of all, I think that this strategy of giving to potential customers misleading information "sorry, we are fully booked tonight but tomorrow there is one table left" is already outdated way to create demand. But anyway it still exists in Lagoon. No need to say that afterwards we realized that it was almost empty. Now to the food. On a website is said : "you will find an exceptional French- and Asian-influenced menu crafted by Chef Jean-Georges to showcase the freshest fish and ingredients indigenous to the islands". The only true statement would be probably that it is Asian influenced. But I should say that "his love for the exotic and aromatic flavors of the East" does not showcase but kills the taste of "the freshest fish or whatever main indigenous to the islands ingredients" . Ginger and fennel come in such abundance that you literally feel nothing else and start thinking if it was used for some sanitary reasons. And overall, I found more of mismatch in components in many dishes then their complementarity. Well , in my subjective opinion, there are much nicer places in French Polynesia which would truly showcase local cuisine without trying to reach "haute cuisine" level and for gastronomic experiences we still always have traditional gourmet routes.
