Nougatine is the more casual sister of Jean-Georges, with a very lively bar scene at night. The restaurant attracts a mix of celebrities, socialites, and movers and shakers in the business world. Adjacent to the formal Jean-Georges dining room, Nougatine serves the signature and seasonal dishes of Chef Jean-Georges for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 365 days a year. The menu is more casual than that offered at Jean-Georges but still market driven, utilizing only the freshest and finest ingredients. In addition to providing gorgeous views of Central Park, the newly renovated dining room by Thomas Juul-Hansen features a bustling, immaculate open kitchen. Tones of brown and cream mingle to create an elegant space that is soothing by day and exciting by night. Nougatine offers a prix-fixe lunch menu Monday through Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. Pre- and post-theater prix-fixe menus are available Sunday through Friday from 5:30 to 6 p.m., and from 10 to 11 p.m.

"Expectations were high given Jean George's stellar reputation. Nougatine was our destination for a late Sunday lunch to celebrate a birthday. Atmosphere warm yet sophisticated. The waitstaff was very attentive (no more bread, please!) and gracious when one briny tuna tartare dish was returned. Wine by the glass recommendations were spot on. Food was extremely high quality and the presentation was excellent. We enjoyed the prix fixe of three courses for $38."

Voted "VERY GOOD" by The New York Times.<br /><br />Rive is a French Bistro on the Saugatuck River in Westport, created by Chef Eric Sierra whose Bistro des Amis in downtown Westport was, for a decade, the go-to place of some of the world's best French bistro cooking. <br /><br />Like the legendary bistros of Paris, Rive is warm, and convivial, a true bistro populaire.<br /><br />The dining room, with a wrap-around wall of windows overlooks a bend in the river, there is fireplace for winter, and in warm weather there is an outdoor patio that feels like a cafe on the Seine. <br /><br />With a suave lighting, urban decor and, of course, un comptoir (a bar) serving hip cocktails and wine by the glass, Rive is very much of-the -moment, as popular Parisian bistros today.

"Rive Bistro continues to be a consistent quality venue in Westport. The gracious service and excellent food are only matched by its lovely location on the Saugatuck River. We've tried many of their dishes and have enjoyed them all. I would highly recommend a visit."

Harbor Lights is the premier seafood house located in East Norwalk, CT. Located on the Norwalk Harbor, it offers well-prepared, attractively presented and sophisticated fare. Open year round, the glassed-in terrace allows for a comfortably heated dining experience in the winter without losing the outside dining experience in the summer.

"The view at Harbor Lights is lovely- there is no better place to feel more relaxed than dining by the water. We were in a corner overlooking a tiny cove and were delighted by the arrival of majestic herons and egrets. It was a crystal clear, cool day and the breeze was a bit much, so the waitstaff were more than happy to close the oversized windows. The food was excellent and our server was very attentive, desire being so busy on a Saturday night. We feasted on swordfish, halibut and tuna and everyone enjoyed their meals. I would highly recommend Harbor Lights."
