We had the chance to discover the cooking of Shaun Hergatt in his new address on the ground floor of the Chandler’s Hotel.
We went with my mother who’s been a regular at this place since the chef moved to the Hotel Chandler. Shaun Hergatt's cuisine is both technical and intellectual, at the same time very elaborated and structured, but with a kinky side too.
The $39 lunch menu is a gem in NYC and a good introduction for first-timers like us. The presentation of the dishes was not only a marvel for the eyes, but also the best way to open our appetite.
The food was exquisite and tasteful; Desserts were delicious and original. Juni’s pastry chef, Mina Pizarro is talented and a good match to Shaun Hergatt's culinary skills.
The wine list is eclectic and well selected from different countries and producers.
We were lucky enough to meet the chef at the end of our meal. We congratulated him on his outstanding cooking and told him that he highly deserved his one star in the Michelin guide. He, however, thought he should have two! We almost totally agreed with him and let him know that, in our opinion, the way to get there was by improving service which is currently quite nice but definitely not on par with the standards of excellence of a two-Michelin starred restaurant.Juni12 E 31st St, New York, NY 10016, USATel :+1 212-995-8599http://www.juninyc.com/
