A return of an UES mainstay

The first solo restaurant that Jean-Georges Vongerichten opened in New York will make its return to the Upper East Side this fall after close to a yearlong closure.

The two-story JoJo, located at 160 East 64th Street, shut down last October for a renovation after 25 years in business. At the time, Jean-Georges’ management company said that they wanted to give the neighborhood mainstay more of “a downtown atmosphere.” The space will look different, and the menu, too, will undergo a transformation to turn the restaurant into a more casual affair. The Times notes that former Jean-Georges sous chef Steven Boutross will helm the kitchen now.

JoJo first opened in its UES brownstone in 1991. The French bistro previously closed for renovations back in 2002, after which the Times awarded it three stars in a review. It hasn’t been reviewed much since then, but check-ins from critics more recently have found that it’s still a solid (albeit slightly antique-feeling) restaurant.

Eater has reached out for more details. Stay tuned.
