Best Prix Fixe Deals in Manhattan?

OC Mutt Mar 29, 2010 03:54 PM

I've tried Nougatine's prix fixe lunch, and it was one of the best deals I've ever seen. What are your discoveries for lunch or dinner?

      Also in theatre district, Estiatorio Milos, which is a greek seafood restaurant with a pre-theatre prix fix. It is somewhat pricey at $50 per person, but it includes a phenomenal tomato salad, choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert. It's gorgeous and the staff is very attentive. Food is superb.

        Is their roasted fish included as one of the entree choices?

      Momofuku noodle bar. It's $30 for dinner ($20 for lunch), different every night, and usually listed on their website. Some nights are better than others, but last night was incredible: a ceviche amuse, duck rillettes with bibb lettuce, pickled fennel, and pickled mustard seeds; black rice risotto with clams and pork buns; an amazing roast sea bream with blood oranges and fennel; and pickled cherry and olive oil soft serves. A remarkable meal for $30.

        I agree with Apiary, above and would add the Gramercy Tavern tavern room's price fixe menu.

        Has anyone tried Aureole's Sunday menu?? It sounds great and includes unlimited wine!

          Does anyone know if Aureole's prix fix lunch deal apply to Saturday lunch?

          Tocqueville's 3-course prix fixe lunch at $24.00 is the best luxury-dining bargain I know of in the city.

            I keep hearing good things about Tocqueville from you and some others. I have to give it a try.

              I went to Dovetail in January for their Sunday suppa. It is a 3 course prix fixe for 38$. I enjoyed it very much. Everything is nice there. I recommend it highly.

                Thanks. I have a tradition of going upclose to read the menu everytime I go to shake shack and drool over the menu! I see they have sweetbreads in Sunday suppa menu, sounds like a great deal.

                  note that the Dovetail tasting menu is also offered at a reduced price on Sunday's, although I forget the exact amount. Really enjoy Dovetail.

            Perry Street, one of JG's restos, offers a $26 lunch & $38 dinner. I've been there for lunch & it was a great value.

              SHO Shaun Hergatt has a 3 course lunch prix fixe for $30. Although there isn't an amuse bouche, you do get served a few mignardises with dessert.

                Jean Georges is 28 for 2 dishes and 14 for every additional. desserts are 8.

                Marea and Convivio are both around 28/30 for 2 dishes. each additional is 12-14 i think.

                Alto is like 36 for 2 dishes and 16 for an additional.

                All of these are for lunch

                    Just to be accurate, the lunch prices at Jean Georges were raised slightly sometime last year: 2 for $29 and $14.50 for each additional course. Desserts remain at $8 each.

                    We recently had an absolutely splendid lunch there. Photos can be viewed here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11863391...
