One interesting note: While we were investigating the price increases at Jean Georges, a spokesperson for the restaurant mentioned that it’s “still the lowest priced three star Michelin and four star New York Times prix-fixe in NYC.”
Is that an accurate statement?
If we confine our analysis to dinner, then Daniel technically has the lowest prix-fixe, starting at $108, though keep in mind that Daniel serves two courses plus dessert for that price; Jean Georges serves three savory courses plus dessert, so if you’re a fan of price-per-course ratios (I shun such calculations because the diner typically can’t order by the course at these venues), then yes, Jean Georges comes out as cheaper.
But if we count lunch, then yes, Jean Georges absolutely has the cheapest prix-fixe, by many orders of magnitude. Here are your three Michelin-starred lunch prices:
Neither Daniel nor Brooklyn Fare serve lunch. There you have it.
