The Mall itself has more than sixty restaurants featuring food of varied cultures both inside and outside China. The restaurant "Jean Georges" at 1 Central Park West in New York City is consistently ranked one of New York's ten best. Owner-chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten opened "Jean Georges" at Three on the Bund in Shanghai in 2004.
