Jean-Georges Vongerichten has joined Daniel Boulud in Vancouver. Jean-Georges, who has a three-Michelin-star restaurant in New York, has made a deal with the luxe new Shangri-La Hotel to run a fabulous restaurant, The Market, scheduled to open in January. It will be his début in Canada. His friend, Daniel Boulud, who also has multi-star restaurants in New York, is going to run the new Lumière and DB Bistro.
Vancouver is a restaurant town! Stars like Jean-Georges and Daniel Boulud will get a warm — no, a hot welcome!
