Hi,

Last night my wife and I finally managed to celebrate our Valentine's day. We decided to go out to the Nougatine dinning room of Jean Georges. This is located on the ground floor of the Trump tower at 59th Street and Central Park South.

The room is beautiful, the foods were pretty amazing - staff was quite polite and very gracious. As I was looking at the wine list, the sommelier Stephen Meyer (sp?) came up and asked if he could help with selection. I asked for the larger list, and explained that I was mostly interested from a professional aspect. He provided, and then returned to the table with a taste of Jean Louis Chave's Hermitage Blanc from 2004. An amazing gesture! The wine was delicious, rich and round with flavors of peach and lychee. A nice treat- Thanks Mr. Meyer!

The food I enjoyed was a dish of "goat cheese fondue" with a frisee salad. The cheese arived wraped in an egg roll crust- just amazing, and delicious. The desert was a Rose Custard, and a  Peanut butter chocolate dish. Both of them were delicious. All in all the restaurant lived up to expectations, and was quite enjoyable.

Thanks,

Ben
