Nougatine is the more casual sister of Jean-Georges, with a very lively bar scene at night. The restaurant attracts a mix of celebrities, socialites, and movers and shakers in the business world. Adjacent to the formal Jean-Georges dining room, Nougatine serves the signature and seasonal dishes of Chef Jean-Georges for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 365 days a year. The menu is more casual than that offered at Jean-Georges but still market driven, utilizing only the freshest and finest ingredients. In addition to providing gorgeous views of Central Park, the newly renovated dining room by Thomas Juul-Hansen features a bustling, immaculate open kitchen. Tones of brown and cream mingle to create an elegant space that is soothing by day and exciting by night. Nougatine offers a prix-fixe lunch menu Monday through Friday from noon to 3 p.m.

The service at Nougatine was outstanding. The waitstaff was extremely attentive. We did the lunch prix fixe and it was worth it. Everything we ordered tasted delicious. All of seafood was prepared perfectly and the molten chocolate lava cake was phenomenal.

So good, i went 2 days in a row whilst visiting from London.
We love the food, the ambience, Nougatine is just that much more casual than JeanGeorges itself.
Also delighted that this is where Jean Georges seems to spend most time cooking and being most visible.

The service this time was rushed and our server let us know that we had to order right away because the kitchen was closing soon. We asked when and they said 3:30... it was 2:30 when we sat down at the table. Strange. And unexpected. Have had a much better experience in the past. This was an off day. And a special occasion for a birthday and an out of town guest that had never been there before. Bad first impresssion

We love Nougatine, the slightly more informal sister to Jean Georges - simply one of the best week time lunch special prix fixe.
A must visit on each trip we come to NYC plus you often get the added bonus of seeing the great man himself - JeanGeorges

I was not told of the menu change where you can’t have the 3 course menu on weekends. This change was done a month ago after I made the reservation and I should have been warned. I go there every time in nyc so it was a big disappointment going somewhere and not getting what you came for. The brunch was a good alternative, but i just wasn’t expecting it.

The service was impeccable. And the food was good but had absolutely no finesse. The presentation of the endive salad was awful: a plate crowded with endive leaves drowning in dollops of sauce. My husband's veal looked like it was served family style and the butterscotch pudding was served in what looked to be a tumbler, with no sea salt caramel. It doesn't help that from where I sat my view was of a temporary chain link fence in front of the building. In a word, disappointing.

It seems to be in decline . One doesn’t mind paying a premium for creative cuisine. Nougatine has gone stale. Is there a new chef. It is a shadow of its past. Pasta dishes scream with inappropriate spicieness- to the point of being inedible . The veal Milanese is good and worth the price. The shrimp salad is artless and tasteless with a few shrimp surrounding a bed of greens with a particularly uninvelntive dressing. This version of the dish is a pale descendant of the prior version of shrimp salad on the menu. Finally the removal of the broccolini pesto pasts was a big mistake. For us it was a signature dish for the restaurant. Pleasant digs near the window but very low value food for the most part. Jean Georges’s empire might have spread to wide with declining quality at its flagship sites as a consequence.

Very disappointing meal. Sommelier and waiter wonderful. Pear/ endive salad soggy and not successful. Salmon ordered medium rare arrived well done. Very mediocre experience at best. Just had a delicious lunch there several weeks prior. Not good for a restaurant of this caliber to be so uneven.

Delicious creative food, surprisingly affordable dessert - the corn soufflé with chili ice-cream is memorable - very attentive service: our waiter picked up we were celebrating an anniversary and desserts were served with a sweet note from the kitchen. Wine menu is a little bit overpriced, but we managed to find a good match for our food choices within our price range. Will definitely recommend for special occasions or foodies!

We arrived at 5:30 pm our order was taken at 6:05 . The food arrived at 6:55pm we had opera at the Met at 7:30. We told the server as we sat down at the table that we had to be out of the restaurant at 7:10z. We refused to accept our main course as a take out which they felt was right. Ultimately we paid for our drinks and first course . What a disappointment band annoyance.
