The Paris Café by Jean-Georges is open Wednesday through Sunday from 4:30 PM to 10 PM.
Reservations are recommended but walk-ins are welcomed!
Located in the heart of the 1962 Eero Saarinen-designed TWA terminal, the Paris Café by Jean-Georges encompasses the entire footprint of the terminal’s original Paris Café and Lisbon Lounge. The spaces were once outfitted by famed Parisian industrial designer Raymond Loewy — the mind behind the 1955 Coca-Cola contour bottle, the 1959 TWA twin globes logo, the 1963 Studebaker Avanti and the 1962 Air Force One livery.
The restaurant’s name holds special significance for Jean-Georges Vongerichten: Raised on the outskirts of Strasbourg in Alsace, France, the world-renowned chef trained in classical French cuisine at Auberge de I’lll in Alsace and L’Oasis in southern France before developing a passion for flavors of the East at luxury hotels in Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Vongerichten — who has been awarded Michelin stars for 14 years — operates 36 restaurants, including ABC Kitchen in Manhattan, Mercato in Shanghai and Simply Chicken in NYC’s Madison Square Garden. He has partnered with Tastes on the Fly, a leading boutique airport restaurateur with more than 20 locations coast to coast, on the Paris Café. “As an avid traveler,” says Vongerichten, “I am very excited to be a part of recreating a culinary destination in this iconic landmark.”
Eero Saarinen’s iconic 1962 landmark is reigniting the magic of the Jet Age.
TWA Hotel’s 50,000 square feet of event space holds up to 1,600 people.
