Super chic and in the heart of Soho, Jean Georges's The Mercer Kitchen is still absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in New York.
I will always 100% order the Salmon Crispy Rice every time I go, and I would eat salad for every meal if the Steamed Shrimp Salad was readily available whenever, wherever. While this may seem unadventurous, I don't care. You won't either after you've tried both.
For a sophisticated yet laidback date, romantic or between friends, or if you want to take your mom somewhere nice, definitely go to The Mercer Kitchen. Mid-range prices for well-above-range food and decor.
