That's right. The dish that is now on every menu, was a mistake. Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten talks about it:

You’re known for creating the Molten Chocolate Cake. What inspired the recipe?
My famous Molten Chocolate Cake was created by accident. During an event, we had baked too many chocolate cakes, leading us to serve uncooked cakes that oozed from their molten core. To my surprise, everyone loved it and it soon became a highly sought after recipe.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten is a titan in the culinary scene, known not only for his mastery in the kitchen but also for his skills as a businessman and entrepreneur. Throughout his storied career, he has created an empire of more than 30 restaurants throughout the world, has earned enough stars to merit a constellation, and could fill a case with his awards.  Born and raised in France, Vongerichten, or simply Jean-Georges as he’s often known, trained at three-starred restaurants throughout his home country before travelling to Asia, where he fell in love with Eastern flavours — a facet that informs his menus around the globe. Celebrities and leaders flock to his restaurants, and his eponymous flagship, Jean-Georges in Trump International Hotel and Tower is a favourite of United States President Donald Trump.
