Chef Vongerichten's rooftop restaurant follows in the footsteps of his restaurants in London, New York, Paris, Kyoto and others. His culinary concept will see Irish classics blended with fresh French and southeast Asian flavors. Guests can indulge in imaginative menus paired with an extensive selection of wines and cocktails curated by the hotel’s sommelier and head bartender. With seating up to 140 guests and set against a backdrop of Georgian Dublin, Jean-Georges brings his signature cuisine to Ireland and will serve up breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. 

The Leinster has been designed by Dublin-based architects ODAA and Henchion Reuter Architects and interior designers ODonnell ONeill to celebrate the heritage of its surrounding area.

Botanical in theme, there will be over 300 curated pieces of original painted art from more than 80 artists dotted around the hotel.
