When you told him you were going to Jean Paul's House, naturally he was jealous. But for all the wrong reasons. He thinks you're having a fling from across the pond, so let him in on the secret before he takes you on Maury. The new man in your life is actually Chef Jean Paul Desmaison, whose latest resto offers seasonal, sustainable new world cuisine with a Peruvian bent, sourced by local producers. That includes grass-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats, FYI. Dip into crispy pork belly with grapes and Pisco 100, or baked crab cakes with honey and dijon. Set in a 1930s cottage, the space is meant to be inviting, like you are stepping into JP's actual home, with distressed boho furniture, mirror decorations, and tree print wallpaper. --Toni Kervina
