Reasons why New York Sucks - Page 447
@indesertum, thanks again for all the suggestions! My girlfriend had a great weekend, and we loved Nougatine! The food and the location are great, and the drinks weren't bad either.
Unfortunately, I found quite a sizeable, and living, slug on top of my salad. That kind of spoiled my appetite, so I switched to drinks instead, which made for a fun brunch. You should've seen the waiter's face when I pointed out the slug, it was hilarious! Had I been in a bad mood, I would've blackmailed them with the picture of the slug in exchange for a free meal, but I settled for a low tip instead. I was surprised they didn't offer to comp the meal, so I suppose it's a regular occurrence at Nougatine.
They sure do, my girlfriend and I spotted it right away. It was impossible not to catch it, a quick glance down and they would've seen it. Besides, I still gave them a 10% tip on a $150 bill, and we were there for less than an hour, so it's not too bad.
I'll be in NY for work the week of August 12. I may bring lawyerkid, who has not been there since she was an infant. We'll likely do some obvious tourist stuff, but I would welcome suggestions for stuff that wouldn't suck for a 13 year old girl. She's an avid dancer, so tips about shows worth seeing (or non-dance stuff) would be great. Thanks
