G Whiz
Jean-Georges’s New Spot at the St. Regis

It’s the dead of winter.

Which, in this city, means good things.

The weather: 70-degrees perfect. Your physique: nicely outlined in cashmere. The traffic... well, two out of three ain’t bad.

And we’re here to tell you things are about to get even better. Eating-lobster-while-overlooking-the-Atlantic better.

Take a peek at J&G Grill, opening tomorrow at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort for your beachside, celebrity-chef-guided, dinner-dating pleasure.

First—yes, the J and G stand for Jean-Georges Vongerichten, of being Jean-Georges Vongerichten fame. The place has a Zen vibe, with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the beach, a slick bar and deep, crescent-shaped booths made for high-stakes negotiations.

You’ll come here for dinner and drinks after a day charter fishing at the Haulover Inlet (you deserve a martini for your efforts) or when entertaining out-of-town clients for power lunches.

Your (still being finalized) feast: a greatest-hits list from JGV’s repertoire, with French, American and Asian flavors making their way into dishes like peekytoe crab cake with ginger and Black Truffle Pizza. Oh, and cocktails like the kumquat mojito.

All great dates involve kumquats.
