Jean Georges-Breakfast?

Give me one worthy dish to order. I have a lunch at James Beard House after so not too heavy.

    I'm a really big fan of Jean-Georges, but I've got to say that the breakfast at Nougatine is not worth it. I've been a couple of times, and while everything is good, it's fairly pricey. There's nothing exciting about it at all--eggs, french toast, pancakes made well, but there are some diners that make these things well too and at least half the cost.

      I agree-nothing remarkable but the eggs benedict with Virginia ham was perfect, the apple pork sausage were also tasty and the "home fries" were spread out in a perfect circle and definitely tasted of truffles.

      the eggs are heavenly. the french toast is equally delicious. you truly cannot order poorly for breakfast at Jean Georges.

        According to their website, Jean Georges does not offer breakfast.

          I meant Nougatine.

          dkstar1-But eggs are eggs, no? Unless they are sous vide cooked eggs covered in caviar...but I think that's only on the lunch menu.

            According to his menus on his website - only The Chambers and The Mercer serve breakfast. Brunch at JoJo's and The Mercer. Did not see much in the way of eggs or French Toast on any of his menus. Not sure how old these menus are...

              True - eggs are eggs. And don't get me wrong, I appreciate the typical diner eggs over easy with rye toast as much as the next guy, but the scrambled eggs here, topped with caviar, are really, really good. I've enjoyed the three breakfasts I've had there immensely. True - its all just breakfast food - but cooked perfectly.
