Best Value: Celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongrichten has a culinary empire that spans the globe, but his eponymous restaurant connected to the Upper West Side's Trump Hotel remains a gold standard for the chef's subtly Asian-inflected, French haute cuisine. While dinner will set you back a pretty penny, lunch is far more reasonable: a 2-course meal is just $48, with additional courses for $24, which makes Jean Georges the most affordable three star Michelin experience you can have in the city.

What will you get? Expect stalwart service and expense account-worthy cuisine while taking in the views of Central Park West and Columbus Circle from the dining room's floor-to-ceiling windows. And remember those three stars? Without interruption, Jean-Georges has held them since it opened its doors in 1997.

Upper West Side's Best Restaurants: One of the world's most famous chefs, Jean-Georges Vongrichten is also a savvy businessman whose constellation of culinary successes span the globe [to Tokyo's Roppongi Hills). But the location on the Upper West Side is the jewel in the crown that remains a gold standard for the chef's subtly Asian-inflected, French haute cuisine. His now-legendary salmon tartare and young garlic soup remain enormously popular with Harry Winston-wearing hotel guests, well-dressed ladies who lunch, and top-tier executives from nearby offices. The front room, Nougatine, has a sleek, modern aesthetic, neutral color palette and increasingly casual atmosphere; Tasting Menu at lunch costs $158. Both dining rooms, however, maintain their stalwart service standard, expense account-worthy cuisine and bright, dappled natural light over Central Park West.

French: Celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongrichten has a culinary empire that spans the globe, but his eponymous restaurant connected to the Upper West Side's tony Trump Hotel remains a gold standard for the chef's subtly Asian-inflected, French haute cuisine. His now-legendary salmon tartare and young garlic soup remain enormously popular with Harry Winston-wearing hotel guests, well-dressed ladies who lunch, and top-tier executives from nearby Hearst offices. The front room, Nougatine, was recently remodeled with a sleek, modern aesthetic, neutral color palette and increasingly casual atmosphere. Both dining rooms, however, maintain their stalwart service standard, expense account-worthy cuisine and bright, dappled natural light over Central Park West.
