The elevator ride up to Jean-Georges takes less than 60 seconds. It’s Willy Wonka-esque — the speed, the acceleration, the view of the city growing smaller and broader the higher you rise. At the top, the doors open to light and glass. To the sound of muffled voices and jazz and concierges standing behind counters, gently easing you along. JG SkyHigh is like a lobby bar to the main dining room. Uniformed bartenders, tall windows, sprays of foliage. It’s a gimlets-and-white-wine crowd, Philly all dolled up in its Saturday-night best and out for a goddamn romp.
