Best Jean Georges Restaurant?
So what does everyone suggest as the best JG restaurant? I know Jean Georges is supposed to be the best and most upscale getting three michelin stars. I have never been to any of his restaurants in the city, however I did enjoy Dune in the Bahamas last summer. I feel that JG's restaurants are very fairly priced compared with other restaurants of the same ilk. Most of his spots have some kind of spring promotion or reasonable prix fixe menu but even if you dine a la carte it seems cool.
So how would you rate his restaurants empire- JG, Perry Street, JoJo, Nougatine, Mercer Kitchen, Vong, Spice Market, etc.
The most popular seem to be Jean Georges, Perry Street, and Nougatine.
Of the three I've been to, Nougatine gets my vote. Though I've not been to JG, I have to assume that it's stellar, being that Nougatine (which I loved) is the "more casual" of the 2.
Mercer Kitchen is blah, as is Spice Mkt, but both interiors are fantastic.
Don't forget to add his newest venture, Matsugen, to your list above.
Always amazed me how he has JG flagship which, for the most part, is deserving of its reputation and now Matsugen has gotten solid word from the right people but everything in between is a waste.
I include Nougatine with the flagship though I doubt it is as consistently great as it used to be.
Amazing how poor the rest are. Hard to believe the same man is behind them all.
Jean Georges. Then Perry Street, just because I've been there most often. I've had one good meal at Nougatine--during Restaurant Week, no less!
