In a bid to get as much al fresco dining in before temperatures dip, this week's date night took place at Jean Georges' sister restaurant Nougatine Terrace. The full menu is served in the outdoor area - just sans the white tablecloths you will find in the main restaurant - and with a fabulous view of Columbus Circle and its infamous replica of the World's Fair Unisphere.
The only downside of sitting outside is that there isn't a lot of light when the sun sets. My deteriorating eyesight meant that the flashlight app on my iPhone made an appearance more than once. Though nothing could take away from the best part of dinner though - a "simple" warm chocolate cake with a gooey centre, served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream:
I highly recommend Nougatine, especially for brunch. I love taking visitors here since the indoor portion has expansive views of Central Park West via it's ceiling-to-floor windows. Breathtaking to say the least. If that doesn't convince you, reservations are welcome at the restaurant - so elusive an offering when it comes to New York City brunches!
Anyway, here's the what I wore out to dinner:
|Anthropologie Norvel Dress (who would have thought such a reasonably priced dress exists at Anthro!), Stormy Seas Necklace, (last worn here) and Beaded Synergy Clutch; Vintage Hermes belt and Kelly Double Tour bracelet; Valentino studded sandals|
Have a good week ahead. With Breaking Bad on the telly, the day-before-Monday just became that much more awesome.
