Profile Last Updated: April 03, 2009
There has been a buzz about MARKET by Jean-Georges from the moment the worldclass restaurant opened in January, 2009. Situated in the exclusive Shangri-la Vancouver Hotel, MARKET features the exceptional cuisine of three-star Michelin chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Speaking of stars, The Vancouver Sun gave MARKET five out of five. Local and out-of-town press have been lavish in their praise. Working with Vancouver wunderkind, Executive Chef David Foot, Vongerichten has produced a unique menu that reflects West Coast influences and international expectations. The restaurant is divided into four sections: a casual bistro with a fireplace; a heated outdoor terrace with city views; a bar; and an elegant fine-dining room.
Regional ingredients with global accents
Seasonal, regional ingredients and fresh, local seafood are the focus at MARKET by Jean-Georges . Lunch starters, for example, include: tuna tartar with spicy radish and ginger dressing; roasted beets with Okanagan goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette; Dungeness crab cake with celeriac-pink peppercorn remoulade and ruby grapefruit; and steamed shrimp salad with tender greens, avocado and champagne dressing. Dinner entrees include: steamed wild Pacific sole with spaghetti squash and soy-yuzu nage; seared B.C. sirloin with gingered mushrooms and soy-caramel sauce; and organic chicken with salsify and lemon sauce.
Exceptional service, surprising spirits
The service at MARKET gets two thumbs up in every review. That includes the expert mixologists at the bar, who serve one-of-a-kind cocktails. MARKET boasts a comprehensive list of quality wines.
