Fodor's Expert Review Jean-Georges

$$$$ Upper West Side French

Chef célèbre Jean-Georges Vongerichten's prix-fixe–only culinary flagship in the Trump International Hotel and Tower focuses wholly on his spectacular dishes, which either approach the limits of the taste universe (perhaps foie-gras brûlée with fig jam and ice-wine reduction) or are models of simplicity (say, toasted egg yolk and caviar). The dining room is sleek but understated, with floor-to-ceiling windows adding sparkle to the white leather furnishings, white walls, and white linens; fresh-cut flowers adorn every table. Exceedingly personalized service and a well-selected wine list contribute to an unforgettable meal. For Jean-Georges on a budget, try the prix-fixe lunch in the less formal and less expensive front room, Nougatine.
