Fodor's Expert Review Jean-Georges

$$$$ Upper West Side French

This culinary temple in the Trump International Hotel and Towers focuses wholly on chef célèbre Jean-Georges Vongerichten's spectacular creations. The chef may now have restaurants sprinkled around the globe, but this is where you want to be, as some dishes on the prix-fixe-only menu approach the limits of the taste universe, like foie-gras brûlée with spiced fig jam and ice-wine reduction. Others are models of simplicity, like slow-cooked cod with warm vegetable vinaigrette. 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 front room, Nougatine.
