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.

Nougatine at Jean Georges is the perfect pre Lincoln Center dining spot. Our waiter was very nice
once he got beyond the programmed "What brings you to us today?" and service was attentive.
The early evening views of Columbus Circle at this time of year are fun. The peake toe crabcake
appetizer was excellent. Unfortunately salmon was overcooked. The list of wines by the glass
offered some very nice choices. The exquisite amuse buche before dinner were thin asparagus in a spicey panko crust with a lemon based dipping sauce. The French fries were much too salty.

Dessert was the always excellent warm varona chocolate cake.
We'll be back again. Not always perfect, but close to it.

Thought I had a 12:30 reservation and it was for 12
My mistake or maybe I put in 12:30 and 12 was made
So I lost the indoor seating but was accommodated quickly but outdoors - slow service and noisy

We dined at Nougatine for a celebratory lunch. The food and presentation was outstanding. The restaurant has a wine list filled with excellent but few inexpensive wines. Our service was very good and we did not feel rushed in any way. I hope to dine again there in the future.

After our last disappointing visit when the servers forgot us and we waited an hour between main course and desert, we had a mostly wonderful experience, Tuna tartare, as usual, was great but prix fixe included foie gras that was terrific. Black bass splendid, angel hair pasta generous and maybe not great but very good. Molten chocolate desert as always excellent, and my wife liked the rubbarb tart--which I thought was more of a cake--slightly more than I. But the entire meal was at the expected high level and served well.

Two problems: The table next to us had one or two shouters among five. And our preferred tables near the window were taken.

We had exceptional service and wonderful food. The only two issues:

They seat families and older (40+) people at less desirable tables. And, they restaurant is in a Trump building.

For a supposedly 5 star restaurant, the service was poor on several levels. I had put in a request for my friend's birthday which was completely ignored. They ended up throwing out our leftovers and then offered to remake it. But then called us to let us know that they found it later. In the trash??? It was an awful way to leave the restaurant. Just a disappointing experience overall.

We came to celebrate my wife's Bday with our 11 year olds. The service staff didn’t treat them like “kids” and us as though we were bringing in a nuisance. The food was what you’d expect at a Jean Georges restaurant. My only criticism is that the bread should be warm & butter not cold so it’s more easily spread. The lobster “burger” was full of big pieces of lobster & beef cooked perfectly medium rare. We also love watching preparations in the open kitchen. Highly recommend.

This is one of the loveliest restaurants in New York. The view, the rarity of having picture windows looking out at the sky and trees is such a treat. The whole feeling of the place is just wonderful They were so nice to let me sit and wait for my brother who was late due to traveling from far away. My husband and I also love Nougatine.
(The only unfortunate thing is that it is attached to a Trump building, and just walking near that makes me not feel good.)
