Jean-Georges Pulls the Plug on His 17-Year-Old Vong

Eater NY has the big scoop that Jean-Georges Vongerichten—"super restaurateur, well dressed Alsatian, and the man who plans to open 50 new restaurants by 2014"—is about to let one go. On Saturday, he'll close the 17-year-old Southeast Asian restaurant Vong, a mainstay of his empire at one time. The restaurant has already been stripped from the restaurant group's website and everything, capping off a not-so-great year for the JGV Empire.
