'The Bar Room Menu' at the Museum of Modern Art's "The Modern"

New York Restaurant Review by Irving Waters
The Policy is: "The Customer comes first" at Danny Meyer's restaurants. It's not just a saying, they really believe it, and if you go there for a drink or a meal, you will feel the difference. (He is responsible also for the Union Square Cafe, Gramercy Tavern, the Shake Shack....)

The Modern is situated 3 doors East of MOMA. It gets busy at the usual hours, it's quite full by 5:30, so arrive early... or late.
Sit at the bar and try the Warm Veal and Goat Cheese Terrine with watercress, which is beautifully prepared and presented. If you like sushi, try their Arctic Char Tartare with basil and trout caviar. These are on the "Bar Room Menu". Prices are in the 'munching with a drink range': the Warm Veal and Goat Cheese Terrine with watercress which was delicious was $14.

At The Modern, specialty cocktails have been well thought out by master mixologist: Ehren Ashkenazi, so be adventurous.
Try the MoDERN MaRTINI: Cilantro-Infused Tanqueray & Fresh Lime Juice.
Location: 9 East 53rd street
