In this week's review, New York Times critic Pete Wells files on famed three Michelin-starred restaurant Jean-Georges, awarding it four stars as had his predecessors Frank Bruni in 2006 and Ruth Reichl in 1997. Wells praises chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's kitchen as "one of New York's most daring and high-performing" and calls the dining room "the most elegant modern dining room in the city."

Wells hasn't always been one to maintain star counts while re-reviewing restaurants. Last Summer Wells dropped Daniel Boulud's 20 year old flagship Daniel down to three stars from four after sending in a dining decoy. In the case of Jean-Georges, however, Wells writes: "Jean-Georges is still a four-star restaurant. That is all. Thank you for your time."
