we came several times to the modern. The cooking is imaginative, extremely tasty and the environment is pleasant. An excellent address at a reasonable price (considering the high quality). Lunch at the bar is a bargain, if you don't take wines (overpriced). A must try.

I came to the restaurant with a few of my friends who are attending Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration. The server was extremely friendly and engaging. The food was beyond amazing and we also met a few Cornell grads who worked at the restaurant which was very nice. I highly recommend the restaurant to everyone, and I look forward to returning when I am back in NYC.

Best part about the Modern is the bar. Great crowd, great drinks. The food is quite good as well...adventurous I would call it with things prepared in creative ways you won't find elsewhere. Prices are a bit steep for the quality, but the service is great and setting superb.
