Description: JoJo offers relaxed yet elegant dining on two floors of a quaint, turn-of-the-century brownstone on the Upper East Side. The first of Jean-Georges’ restaurants in New York City, this neighborhood gem opened in 1991 to rave reviews. It was voted best new restaurant of the year by Esquire magazine and has retained its three-star status from the New York Times for 21 years. Regarding the name, JoJo was Chef Jean-Georges’ nickname as a young boy. Jojo is a hospitable setting for a casual dinner, special occasion, or private party. Guests can feel comfortable in jeans or in evening attire. The contemporary French menu still features some well-loved original dishes, including the Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake.

“Excellent service, meal and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

In a old townhouse on a side street, we had an excellent meal with friends with highly attentive and pleasant service. A true New York experience. Can highly recommend JoJo.

“On the short list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Lovely evening in welcoming and comfortable smaller restaurant. Had upstairs window table. All courses quality ingredients and well-prepared [rarely the case that all "work."] Recommend the shrimp salad app and poached lobster; also lamb chops. We have high standards, look for fine, small restaurants around the world--JoJo's definitely measured up tonight, a Sunday.

“Duck was great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Is a small restaurant, but the attention is excellent and the food is delicious. I had the duck, which is wonderful and my fiancé had a very nice meal of the day, which is cheaper and very convenient.
