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.

We went to the restaurant on occasions on regular menu but we would definitely not recommend for restaurant week’s menu. They are great for regular menu at regular price. This restaurant is not suitable for restaurant week’s participation. For the price of restaurant’s week is definitely not worth!! It would be much better going to a decent restaurant than going to high end restaurant for this price. You get what you pay for. First time visit during ‘the restaurant’s week’ at a high end restaurant.

We waited 20 minutes from the time of our reservation to be seated. We had the restaurant week offerings which were just ok, nothing special. Expected more, since I had dined at Jean Georges previously. This was a disappointment.

An absolutely lovely experience with a great and very kind waiter. Food was excitingly original in flavor and delicious, except the bland flounder (but the corn was outstanding).

A few lapses in the white glove service of opening doors, clearing the table...and when we asked for more of a condiment it was presented in a mini bottle with the plastic wrap still on — which was annoying to remove and really just clashed with the tone precedent of the dining experience.

But loved it overall and would gladly return!

The whole experience was a disappointment. Our waiter acted like we were a big inconvenience to him. But is it out of line to be offended to be asked for bread plates, a knife, butter, or water refills? Most of the food was okay, but the pastries were stale and inedible. I give the visit one star versus none for a friendly hostess and a nice table near the window.

Our waiter was excellent as he was very attentive and recognized what should have been served first especially towards the end, should be coffee order first before dessert.

One of my entrees, the tenderloin was full of tendon and was very difficult cutting through it. Our waiter replaced it with a new one right away.

Nougatine has always been my choice of restaurant in NYC and tonight was the only time my food was not 100%.

Thank you!

I have been to Jean George before and I had a great experience. Just curious about the difference between JG and Nougatine at JG and made a reservation during Restaurant Week. Before going there today and already checked the recent reviews and lots of them are negative. Went for lunch today and it was quite disappointed. Service was great. Food was OK for what I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. My friend ordered from the regular menu, for the price we paid is totally not worth it. The dish plating is not something I expected from JG, I thought they were from Applebee's. The Shrimp Salad is OK and the duck was supposed to be cooked medium, but it was close to well done at last. House made soda was good. Hm...is the chef there really on vacation? What's wrong with Jean George? He really doesn't mind to have this quality of food to ruin his reputation?

One of the top restaurants in NYC. Between Terrace, Nougatine et JG you cannot be wrong. The staff is great and always looking to make the guests as happy as they expect. So a must in NYC

I have dined at Nougatine over the years, especially during Restaurant Week, and I think I have finally reached the point where I can confidently say that I will never return. Overall, Nougatine (and likely the entire restaurant) is just tired and stuck in the last decade. Once a place I would enjoy eating innovative dishes and discovering new flavor combinations, the only thing I found impressive about this last and final meal was their ability to multipurpose ingredients and sauces, like the berries that were featured in both my appetizer and dessert and the cucumber yogurt sauce in both my appetizer and entree. One member of my party ordered the Veal Milanese from the regular menu and served a depressing plate of arugula doused in vinegar and a greasily fried cutlet. This disappointment competed with the molten chocolate cake, which was filled with cheap chocolate and overly-sea-salted caramel ice cream, which made me question humanity. A meal like this is simply not worth anyone's hard earned money. I'd strongly recommend dining elsewhere.

Mix-up in the kitchen resulted in our entrees not being prepared. The waiter did not notice and even when we inquired where our food was he made up some excuse about it being busy despite people seated after us receiving their entrees and even paying their bill before we received ours. Only after going to the maitres de we're our entrees prepared.

Foie gras was uniquely divine. Crab cake was large but ordinary. Pasta with meatballs was too spicy. There were too many spicy choices on the menu. At least one dish in each category should be more plain for less adventurous companions.

The food cannot even compare to fast food. I dont know whether they don't want to cook well or they do not have ability to offer costomer tasty food. And the service is so bad. They never ask you how it taste, I think they may probaly know the answer already, they are just too afraid to know. Basically it nothing comapres to any restruants, even cannot compare to Panera. And it is just as loudly as sports bar. How can this kind of resturant be one star michelin? What a joke! WON'T COME BACK ANYMORE!

Very overrated. Small child ran around the restaurant disturbing everyone, people stood at the bar in shorts and flip flops, the table behind us loudly complained about everything, and food was way too spicy. My daughter asked that her pasta dish come without the hot peppers and, of course, it was served with hot peppers. We were so excited to go to a Jean-George restaurant, but are now wondering what is all the fuss about. Maybe they weren't trying very hard because it was restaurant week.
