The Retro Vong Menu Revealed, Offered at 1992 Prices

New, 4 comments

Midtown East: Earlier today when we noted Jean-Georges Vongerichten was bringing back some of the items from his 1992 Vong menu, we didn't know it was going to be such a complete overhaul. Now we learn that the restaurant is cutting all items on its current menu—save what it serves for the $24 lunch and $35 dinner prix fixes—and will replace them entirely with the original 1992 menu...offered at 1992 prices. Talk about creativity in times of trouble; talk about a Dealfeed. The new/old menu is below:
