Concierge.com's insider take:
The prices have crept up since Jean Georges Vongerichten first opened Market at the Shangri-La Hotel in 2009. Chefs come and go, but one of Jean Georges' considerable talents is the ability to have cooks execute his signatures without flaw: black truffle and Fontina pizza, crispy Parmesan-crusted organic chicken, soy-glazed short ribs with apple-jalapeño purée, and Pavlova with passion fruit sorbet. In the understated dining room, the tables are comfortably spaced and the taupe and gray palette is elegant in its restraint. Entrées range from $18 for a burger with black truffle dressing to a $42 lobster dish; the wine list, which emphasizes British Columbia wines, is reasonably priced. But there's no compromise here, in either the quality of ingredients or the professionalism of the staff. The restaurant also comprises the Market Bar, where ace bartender Jay Jones shakes things up to go with light snacks.—Kasey Wilson
