Meal #9: (There’s a Boston Market sleepover meal that is the *real* #9 but that’s neither here nor there.) Fancy ladies lunch at Jean Georges’ Nougatine.
My dream of being a lady who lunches continues. Jen, Lizzie, Jane, and I got appropriately dressed (sans heels because Jen threatened us with a 10 block walking adventure afterwards) and popped over to this super classy place. Pro tip: the prix fixe is an incredible deal here.
The good: My favorite course was my appetizer of shrimp salad with avocado. Perfectly cooked shrimp, creamy avocado (I probably didn’t need the whole half but wow that’s generous), and a champagne dressing.
The bad: Those rigatoni were too al dente for my taste. The sauce and the meatballs more than make up for it though.
The ugly: Jane’s drink which was supposed to be a gin fizz but tasted suspiciously of a margarita… so odd.
