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 $44 prix-fixe lunch menu Monday through Friday from noon to 2:30p.m.

We tried the fixe prix menu. The selections were numerous and varied. The food was delicious & plated creatively. The cocktails we ordered were good.

We were there in mid-December so it was crowded and noisy - lots of what I assume were office holiday lunches, etc. The noise level, for us, hoping to enjoy a nice lunch, was uncomfortable.

Our server didn’t appear to have much knowledge of the wine list & wasn’t very helpful in her recommendations. The server for the table next to us kept bumping in to our table to serve the other table. Other than those minor annoyances, the service was adequate but certainly not overly accommodating, for the site and price level.

All in all, the food was very good. But it was noisy & the service not top notch.

Love this place for breakfast normally but this time the service was surprisingly awful. They forgot to bring items they charged for and then said it didn't matter because they didn't charge for some items they had brought. Rude and ridiculous. Extraordinarily slow as well. As always the food was great.

Food was solid but server Ghorka was void of warmth or personality. He brought the bill before we could order coffee or desert. We felt rushed and unwelcome. We won’t be back any time soon.

We held a holiday lunch with a good friend and colleague from Switzerland. Beautiful lunch; we ordered the three-course prix fixe, a wonderful deal. We order the butternut squash soup; the tuna tartare (unexpectedly and delightfully spicy); the salmon and the seabass, both in scrumptious presentations and so flavorful; and the chocolate meltdown cake and the apple pie, both just delicious. The ambience is wonderful with well-spaced tables meant for good conversation and solicitous, wonderful service. The restaurant was full and for good reason, with its wonderful location near Central Park. This was our second holiday lunch there--may we have many, many more!

Jean George's less formal and less expensive restaurant in the Trump Tower. You must pass through here to get to the (now) 2 star. Surprisingly, although we came here pre-theater, the ambience, service and food would merit a star were it not the "younger sister". We began with drinks: cucumber martini w grey goose (our request) was delicious. A (cold) foie gras served between layers of brioche brought back memories of Alsace and the wonderful, rich, foie gras served locally there. Steamed sea bass was light and perfect, complimented by a glass of Chenin blanc. the meringue dessert was also quite nice.
service was friendly, [professional and informative. our waiters favorites were spot on.
our seat was perfect: to our left, Central Park, in front, Columbus Circle both windows adorned with festive lights and wreaths.
we spent 1 hr 45 mins dining before walking a few short blocks to Lincoln Center.
Highly recommended

Don't order the pork chop. It was inedible. Cooked until it was dry and barely able to be cut. Lobster burger was meh. JG has gone down hill steadily to the point of not worth it. Service cordial but slow.

We wanted to relax with a cocktail and not order dinner right away. We ordered a martini and while we waited for 15 minutes for our drink to be delivered we were asked two more times if we were ready to order. The fourth time we were asked if we were ready to order (within 30 minutes of arriving) we figured they wanted to turn our table so we ordered. Food was good. Wine list was SO ridiculously expensive that we each ordered a glass. I would return for lunch but not dinner.
