In New York I had a prix fixe lunch at Nougatine (the casual dining room adjacent to Jean Georges in the Trump Tower). At only 24 bucks, it's a steal.

First course was carrot and citrus soup with cumin crisp. Segments of orange and grapefruit accompanied the creamy carrot soup with that delicious cumin cracker thing. There were also bits of candied ginger and that stuff.

Next I had the pineapple glazed short ribs with ginger and mushroom ravioli and mint. Outstanding.

For dessert, chocolate cake with cocoa nib ice cream. It's much more complex than it sounds, but it's hard to describe.
