We went to Aureole for Friday night dinner. The location is great, it's right between Bryant Park and Times Square. Even with that location, the restaurant was peaceful and didn't feel too stressful.
Make sure to snag your reservation at OpenTable.
Lunch $29 | Dinner $42
Some restaurants have supplemental menus and items.
This is the menu for Winter 2018. There are selections for vegetarians, for carnivores, and for pescatarians.
This is the LIBERTY ROOM, not the Dining Room. The dining room has a JACKET REQUIRED dress code, but the Liberty Room is more casual (especially so since it was Restaurant Week, I'm assuming).
Here, it really did seem like most people were ordering the Restaurant Week prix-fixe menu, whereas at Nougatine, it seemed pretty split between the regular and special menu.
Apologies in advance for the strange lighting...there were a lot of flashing billboard signs, so the colors were all a bit off.
We randomly got a "service" of petit fours that no one around us got, which was unexpected.
That being said, this was nice and fruity and citrusy. The cranberry was nice, too, a nice tart flavor with the moist citrus cake.
This was a miss for us.
