Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten owns 11 restaurants in New York City, two in Las Vegas, a pair in Shanghai, another in Paris, and has a hand in more than a dozen other popular dining establishments in the glittering capitals of the world.
But the famous chef and restaurateur has turned out the lights at his only Boston establishment. Market, Vongerichten’s highly rated farm to table restaurant in the W Boston Hotel, closed in late December.
“It proved to be a challenging operating environment,” said Max Buccini, a spokesman for Culinary Concepts Hospitality Group of New York, which owns the restaurant and collaborated with Vongerichten. “Due to the rising costs of labor in the hotel landscape in Boston, it became increasingly difficult to operate.”
