Finally got to try the flagship restaurant and I must say I was not disappointed. Went in on a weekday night and even the 2 michelin star restaurant was maybe 60-70% full. We were two of us and were seated in a 3 person table almost near the server station (there was a table which was closer on the other side). Not the best table of the house, but in their defence rest of the tables looked more intimate and my Aunt and me were not here for an intimate evening. We were started with the wine list and menus. They were happy to suggest  a nice light bottle to go with our 10 course vegetarian dinner. I did tell him that we are no wine experts and the recommendation were not ostentatious considering the fact that I didnt know much about it. The meal itself was fairly long and I would detail it for anyone who wants to read. We started with a mushroom broth which had the cutest and smallest raw mushrooms i've seen (they were like 0.25cm). The next was a crisps and hummus course. Rice crisps with some umami adding flavors, kale and fresh cucumbers with an amazing pumpkin seed and broccoli hummus. Obviously after that we were given a small napkin to clean our hands. Next was a mushroom carpaccio of sorts with fried mushrooms and balsamic. It was so fresh with salty and sweet hints. This was followed by steamed and blanched tatsoi and  thai basil with jalapeno lemongrass broth and avocado. As first the avocado seemed odd to me but when I tasted it, it provided an amazing creaminess to the dish. Next was a braised and roasted cabbage with white truffles and a celery root emulsion. I am no expert and I absolutely love truffles but I think this dish would have been as good without the truffles as the dashi was out of the world. Thick, salty and so delicious! But hey, everything tastes even better with truffles :). Next was a roasted and caramelized butternut squash with pumpkin seed and olive oil. The squash's cooking is still a mystery to me and I would love to replicate it. It was almost savory with sweet notes. Next came the red curry roasted carrots with coconut lime emulsion. The carrots had a kick and I could eat that emulsion with a spoon. So sharp and fresh. Next was my dish of the night, brussels sprouts with pear apples pecans mustard and rosemary. Sounds complicated but those fruits and their texture was the best thing i've put in my mouth in a while. This was followed by a fried baby artichoke with blood orange and celeriac. Artichokes are one if my favorites and this was a good way to represent them. Last savory course was romanesco with green curry. The vegetable was cooked to perfection and curry sauce was yum but I did miss eating the sauce with a spoon in the last two courses. Next was a palate cleanser with cranberry and it was da 'bomb'. I swapped my dessert for chocolate while my aunt got the tropical. Chocolate was a mix of caramel, ganache, chocolate icecream, peanut butter honey icecream and passion fruit to round all of it up. Tropical was a coconut semifreddi shell filled with pineapple sorbet and fruits. Tbh i enjoyed her dessert more though we were stuffed so we didnot finish either. This ended with a petit fours (chocolates, tart, gummy bears and marshmallows). This all was accompanied with unlimited supply of the most adorable mini sourdough and multi grain bread with european  butter. The food was very well seasoned and spice. They didnt pull back on flavor anywhere to accomodate a non spice/salt eating palate. I was super impressed that vegetables were so front and center and the only grain I ate was in the bread. When I swapped my dessert, they did check if I was ok with gelatin and that's the amount of detail they went into for a vegetarian menu. Highly highly recommend for a special night or if you are a fan of fancy restaurants. They use traditional french techniques with no pretense of molecular gastronomy(probably that's why they lost a star) and its food that you can eat more than once in a week. Sure it had butter and fat but it was comforting as well and I didnot feel heavy, stuffed or bad the next morning. On a note: the staff was extremely attentive. From coat check to getting a fresh napkin everytime we used left our or push the chair in while sitting in.
Cannot even begin to express the love I have for this fine-dining restaurant! I don't think saying it's a restaurant gives it justice. It's more of an experience. Perfectly prepared, portioned and timed meals. Our server was so knowledgeable about the food, ingredients and the restaurant itself my date and I were floored. I don't remember her name but she was impeccable. You could just tell she loved her job and made recommendations about wine which was extremely helpful as the wine list is extensive. The service is just outstanding here and the dining experience one has here will be nothing short of memorable! I will def be back here when in New York again!
One of the best dining experiences ever! My fiance and I decided to do the Lunch Prix Fixe here on a Saturday afternoon after our engagement shoot at Central Park. We treated our friend as well because she did our photos for free. $68 for the prix fixe lunch meal is definitely a win for us (cuz engagement photos range from $400-$600 for 90min-2 hrs). We were 15 minutes late but the hostess didn't give us any problems and brought us to our table right away - we had to walk through Nougatine to get to Jean Georges. When our hostess slid the doors open, we were greeted with a bright and lively room. Our waitress was very attentive, helpful and not overbearing. She popped in at the right moments and shared her recommendations based on our preference. 1. Caviar Egg Toast - We added the caviar toast ($78, more than our prix fixe) and shared amongst the 3 of us. There was 3 perfectly cooked yokes sandwiched between 2 pieces of crispy toast and a generous dollop of caviar was perched on top. The yoke was cooked perfectly; we were amazed how the yokes kept its' nice plump shape while still being soft and jiggly. If you're feeling over the top like us or celebrating something, it's definitely worth it. 2. Santa Barbara Uni - super fresh, creamy, and sweet! 3 pieces of uni sat on a small piece of toast which added a nice crunch with the creamy uni. 3. Tuna Ribbons w/ Avocado (fiance's)- Generous amount of tuna ribbons sitting on top of an avocado puree in a ginger marinade. The ginger marinade had a nice spicy kick to it. 4. Beef Medallion with a Poached Daikon Radish in a mustard broth - the beef medallion pair well with the mustard broth, which gave it a nice kick. The beef medallion was a little chewy for me. The daikon radish gave it a nice sweetness to cut the broth. Overall, the flavors were nicely balanced. 5. Chocolate dessert - it was chocolate in all shapes, sizes, and form. It was paired with passion fruit sauce so that tartness helped with the bitterness and richness from the chocolate. At the end of the dessert, we also had a dessert tray with 2 types of homemade gummy bears, 2 truffles, homemade Madagascar vanilla bean marshmallows (THIS WAS SO CLOUDY AND DREAMY). Our waitress also presented us with a chocolate mousse to congratulate us on our engagement. The overall experience was amazing- from the attentiveness of our wait staff, to the little details of our dishes, we really enjoyed our meal. Fine dining isn't just about the food, but the overall experience. Jean-Georges really went above and beyond!
