From start to finish this was one of the finest dinners I've ever had. The setting is nice. The dining room looks out into the courtyard of the MOMA. My only complaint about the atmosphere is the bar area is too close to the dining area and a lot of the sound carries over. The prix fixe menu has enough choices to make it hard ordering. It is a four course prix fixe. I started with praline foie gras, followed by rabbit truffle dumplings, chorizo encrusted cod, and ended with the warm fig tart. The serving staff is delightful, engaged, and knowledgable, but they don't overwhelm you. The presentation of each course is the best I've seen and the ingredients compliment each other so well. The wine menu is expansive, although there are only about 10 wines by the glass. I had a wonderful French Chardonnay. And in true French fashion, they just kept bringing out complimentary samples. They started us off with a tuna tartar in a celery puree. And the made in house chocolate cart was devine (try the lemon basil milk chocolate, unbelievable) I am not by any means a food snob, but I know good food and presentation when I see it. The Modern lived up to my expectation and exceeded it! I highly recommend dining here.
