Jean-Gorges: Perfect lunch-date location

So for my first lunch in New York, I made reservations to Jean-Gorges. It was surprisingly easy seeing as though it was so hard to make reservations at many other restaurants in town. They had a $38.00 lunch menu that included your choice of 2 courses and a complimentary dessert. I loved the fact that the menu had so many options! If you wanted to choose an extra course, you could add $19.00. For the portions (which was the same as their dinner portions), the price was well worth it!

After we got seated, we were presented with a selection of bread. The atmosphere was very spacious and minimalistic. I was surrounded by shades of white, grey and silver, they even had a silver Fiji water holder that was a perfect fit for the bottle.

Afterwards, they served their summer Amuse Bouche: Watercress sorbet with almonds & fresh cream. Fluke sashimi, cured goat cheese with raspberry

What I recommend:

  • Parsnip soup with coconut lime and mint: 5/5 
  • Goat Cheese Gnocchi, caramelized baby artichokes: 5/5
  • Sea Scallop Caparccio 5/5

Service: 5/5

  • Everyone was genuinely polite and courteous. Great service from beginning to end. They even escorted me to the bathroom.

Ambience: 5/5

  • Comfortable chairs, big windows with a lot of natural lights.

Verdict: Definitely would come back for lunch!
