I am planning a trip to Manhattan in late January and I am considering going to Jean Georges for dinner. My gf and I have been to Daniel twice (the first time was incredible the second time, very good but not as good as the first time) and we are looking to try another great restaurant out. I really wanted to go to Per Se but they are all booked up for dinner on the evenings we are there we would not want to do lunch as there are other things we would like to do in Manhattan during the day.
I spent about 30 minutes reading previous posts on Jean Georges and noticed there was a wide range of opinions. But, for the most part I noticed that most of the criticism seemed to be from many years ago and the more recent posts were more positive.
But before breaking the bank, I am wondering if people who have been there in the last year or two might chime in on how good they thought it was in terms of both the food and the service and whether they thought it was worth it.
I have dropped the occassional small fortune in the past, and when the restaurant is great - I am really happy I did it..... thankfully, we have only had moderate let downs and as we are not rich, would like to keep spending money on meals that actually blow away our expectations away and leave us in awe.
