There are not many chefs in the world who we know by just their first names. Jean-Georges is one. And he is coming to the Charlottesville area.
Keswick Hall announced today that world-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten will oversee the property’s culinary operations when it reopens next year. The restaurant, Keswick Hall says, will be the focal point of the property’s extensive renovation. Best known for the New York restaurant bearing his name, the Alsatian born chef now oversees close to forty restaurants, and has become one of the most decorated chefs alive, with more than a dozen James Beard Foundation awards or nominations. “I love creating inspiring new restaurant concepts and menus,” says Jean-Georges, “and am excited to be partnering with Keswick Hall to bring my vision for this beautiful luxury hotel to life.”
