jean georges’ lapico spices up japanese dining

May 22nd, 2009

Park Hyatt Tokyo‘s New York Grill is importing something especially scrumptious this July: the current Chef de Cuisine at the famed Jean Georges in New York, Mark Lapico.  No slouch in the kitchen, Lapico’s work received four stars from The New York Times, three stars from The Michelin Guide, and was a driving force behind Jean Georges winning the title of “Most Outstanding Restaurant” at the 2009 James Beard Foundation Awards.

From July 6-12, he will be treating the diners of New York Grill to his exquisite meals.  The contemporary French cuisine with Asian influences, from Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s many years working in Asia, are brightly re-invented in Lapico’s signature dishes, like Egg Toast with Caviar and Dill, and Yellowfin Tuna Ribbons with Avocado, Spicy Radish and Ginger Marinade.

Not only does Lapico’s food work wonders on taste buds, but there is also a dash of art in each thoughtful presentation. This talented chef will certainly add something special to New York Grill. Lucky Tokyo!
