I've been to Jean Robert's Table a couple of times - on a fancy date with my husband and to try their French Lunch Tray (which is a lunch bargain) - but my friend Nedra had never been so we decided to check out the French Lunch Tray again since it had been a few years!
First course: Shaved brussel sprouts, dried cherries, almonds, butternut squash and shallot vinaigrette. It seems that shaved brussel sprouts are all the rage in terms of alternatives to lettuce. The cherries and butternut squash were really good as was the shallot vinaigrette. It was crisp and light - almost a slaw more than a salad.
Why Should You Go - If the price tag of a Jean Robert restaurant is out of your price range - this is a great chance to try the best chef in the city. Definitely review the menu and if you don't love it - hold off a week - it'll change!
