The Modern is Danny Meyer’s two Michelin star restaurant tucked artfully inside the Museum of Modern Art.

It’s a tasting menu only situation. For dinner, you can choose 4 or 8 courses. But be warned, the courses are pretty sizable and I was full after the 4 course (and a few tiny freebies thrown in).

Basically, even if you’re a little piggy like me, you’ll be satisfied without completely emptying your wallet (only just sort of emptying it).

The highlights were the pumpkin soup with hazelnut foam amuse bouche and the heavenly moist and tender comte crusted beef.

Nothing really was a lowlight, except the apple dessert was slightly forgettable. It just tasted like apples. NBD.

The Modern is definitely worth the splurge (our total bill was $250 each, tips are built into the price and not accepted at the end) for a special occasion meal in a swanky locale.
