About Nougatine at Jean Georges

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 Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.

This may have been the best lunch my sister and I have had together in the twenty years since we were diagnosed with celiac disease. The staff was very knowledgeable and the food was interesting and very delicious.

Lovely, relaxed atmosphere with attentive service. Not an everyday go-to, because of price, but a special treat after a movie, or another informal dinner.

We love Nougatine. The prix fix lunch is a great value and dinner is refined and always special. We have been going Nougatine or Jean Georges for the past 8 years and it never disappoints. Chef Jean Georges is mostly there everyday overseeing the service. A gem of a restaurant...and Chef!

Dîner en sortant du Metropolitan Opéra. Dernier service (23h) dans une salle vide mais très professionnel.
Seul bémol, on nous annonce en arrivant que la cuisine allait fermer dans quelques minutes!
On s’est contenté d’un plat et d’un dessert, tous deux excellents avec de bons vins au verre.

Phenomenal experience overall! We were visiting from Minneapolis and were in search for a restaurant with great ambiance, great food & not a pre-fixed menu. My husband & I sat at the bar for a drink/appetizer and moved to the dining area for dinner. Would recommend this to anyone in search of a great dinner spot!

Quality of food was not that good. The side dishes was not selected correctly and were uneatable! My comments about it to the waitress was met with a sentence such as “this is how the Chef prepares it and it is a recepie from his home town!!!!

I hadn’t been back to Nougatine in almost 20 years. To my amazement, the food, the service, the ambience were perfection. And at $38, it is the best pre fixe luncheon in New York City. Run to Nougatine.

We live around the corner from this restaurant and visit for a casual, civilized dining experience. The food and the service have always been consistent however last night, for some reason, we were excluded from the amuse bouche as well as the tiny offering of after dinner chocolates. Strange. After 2008 there was a shift in many of the restaurants in order to cut expenses. Unfortunately it's been those little things that made a restaurant special and this establishment was no exception. No longer was there an offer of choices of bread, no longer were there nice placemats on the tables, delicate sugar cubes were replaced with packets of ordinary sugar. It's sad that even the nicest restaurants that charge the most money for the dining experience find it necessary to cut back on the little things that make it special.

We had lunch for three and chosen the prefixed menu. The food was very good and the wine which was selected by the sommelier was perfect matched to the food we had chosen. There were some troubles connected though with the ambiance of the restaurant. First of all the plates in which the dishes were served were scratched on the sides, which was very unexpected. Secondly, they served french fries along with lobster burger and to that dish we had ordinary ketchup, without any touch of the restaurant. If the restaurant had come up with a ketchup blending that was totally different from the usual one which we are used to get anywhere else it should raise up the level. Finally the coffee, it was cold and very light in taste. In total, we are very satisfied and warmly recommend this restaurant.

underwhelming and disappointing experience. inattentive hostess (3 standing like having a job to stand there) to the meal that is way too salty and nothing special. I had a high hope for Jean George restaurant. Without his name, this restaurant would not survive. Mediocre ingredients drawn in salty sauce.

While the setting & location were absolutely perfect - and the food quite good and reasonably price - the service was horrible.

It was Christmas Day so I will give them the benefit of the doubt that is was a holiday exception.

I will definitely return and most certainly would recommend it - as the location and view is so lovely.

Horrible tasteless food. I expected to be wowed with every bite since there’s a 3 Star Michelin plaque in this restaurant. I cannot believe how they got 3 stars! Servers were not trained. Got our order wrong twice. Bread was stale and butter cold. Will never go there again nor recommend it to anyone. Negative 5 stars!

ディナーで利用しました隣の席の人がグラスを落として割れましたがイタリア系のアメリカ人のウエイターは来てくれませんでした。女性マネージャーの対応がとてもよかったです。お客は白人しかいませんでした。隣の席の人がプロポーズされていました。
アメリカ人でも特別な日に利用するレストランです。
有色人種にはあまり向かない感じのレストランでした。
