NYC Winter Resaturant Week 2011 at Last!

Tonight Graybeard and I shall feast at Nougatine at Jean Georges, in the "casual dining area," I was snootily informed when I called yesterday to confirm our reservations. Not off to the best start. Sounds like this might be one of those places where restaurant week is beneath them. Why do it then? The restaurant must make money and gain future business from RW, so why the attitude? I looked up the RW menu on their website (how embarrassing for them--their website actually has the words "restaurant week" in tiny type), and it does sound amazing (tuna tartare, ginger marinade, and market radishes, anyone?). NYC is great. Judgment shall be reserved until this evening.

  1. I do believe that the public wishes to hear about the RW Delmonico debacle at some point. Put that one in the idea file.

  2. Someone's got to stop RW participating restaurants from featuring cheap ingredients for that week only...market radishes, carrots naturale??? Come on! The whole idea is supposed to be to familiarize potential customers with their wonderous food & presentation, so quit with the cheap stuff!

  3. That's a great point. Nougatine is off to an even worse start than I thought!

  4. Great idea about Delmonicos. The world needs to know what a craptastic place that is.
