NOUGATINE at Jean Georges

Am I the only one who is not blown away by the Nougatine at Jean Georges? I’ve read rave reviews by so many and yet my experience there was lacking.
Nougatine is located on the outer rim of Jean Georges. It’s a bright and airy space that’s overlooks Central Park.
Nougatine offers some phenomenal lunch and dinner deals – a $26 pre-fix lunch and many special seasonal offers that are real bargains!
For food that comes out of the same kitchen as Jean Georges, it makes me wonder….how much of a difference could there really be between the two? Of course – so far I haven’t been past Nougatine….so i’ll save the comparison for another review. Read the rest of this entry

Chef Daniel Boulud’s db Bistro Modernein mid-town, is a perfect lunch spot where French cuisine meets the American palate to create delightfully flavored food.

The service is very warm and friendly (very cute waiters with charming smiles!). I recommend going for the pre-fix lunch as food here can get pretty pricey.
I went to db Bistro Moderne during the NYC winter restaurant week and got a great deal on lunch. Though we didn’t try the Original db Burger, it’s meant to be the dish to eat here. Perhaps next time…….. Read the rest of this entry
