Nougatine at Jean-Georges Restaurant Review

: What separates Nougatine from the eponymous, glorious restaurant Jean-Georges is a wall --- and the amount of the tab. Otherwise, the food has the same cachet stemming from the same kitchen concocted by the same chef. Although the idea of Nougatine is to offer a shortened, simplified menu, the level of quality and sophistication remains notable in line with the Jean-Georges high-wire act. If you can’t afford Jean-Georges, don’t miss Nougatine. The talent of M. Vongerichten shows and also shines in this lesser experience and your wallet will be significantly less depressed. Breakfast is served daily and a lunch prix-fixe is available Monday through Saturday. From 5:30 p.m.-6 p.m. and 10 p.m.-11 p.m. Sunday through Friday for $38, you can enjoy watermelon and goat cheese salad followed by crispy organic chicken with Goldbar squash and a roasted tomato vinaigrette, or salmon baked with lemon crumbs, with sweet chili glaze and Swiss chard. Top this with a warm Valrhona chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream. For the health-conscious, they serve homemade fruit and herbal sodas, such as ginger-lemon or black cherry-yuzu. One step higher, Nougatine presents a tasting menu comprised of five courses including a foie gras and strawberry brûlée with balsamic and shiso.
