Opening Soon: “Market”

September 10, 2008.
Celebrity chef Jean Georges Vongerichten to launch Market in January 2009

The new Shangri-La hotel opens on Alberni in January, and with it comes “Market”, the first Canadian restaurant by international celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Paul Grunberg, formerly the general manager of Chambar, will be running the show. The main dining room, together with two small private rooms, will seat 84, not including an outdoor terrace, which can accomodate 60 covers, or the 29 seat bar. A more casual bistro will have space for 36. Market will be open for both lunch and dinner.

According to recently received press materials, “Jean-Georges will adapt his popular ‘modern’ style – a reflection of his classic French training, his 10 years in Asia, and the Culinary Concepts’ philosophy of ‘global in reach, local in content’ – to tailor the Vancouver version of MARKET by Jean-Georges. His signature ‘vibrant cuisine’ abandons the traditional use of meat stocks, instead featuring intense flavors and textures resulting from the use of vegetable juices and fruit essences, light broths and herbal vinaigrettes. Jean-Georges’ culinary vision and execution have not only redefined industry standards but have also revolutionized the way in which diners eat.”

One to definitely look forward to. More on JGV here.
