After my daughter finished sleep away camp, I booked a few extra days in the city as a pre birthday gift and celebrating her upcoming senior year. We got a late start and by the time we got to MoMA we were starving. We found The Modern by accident. I felt out of place being surrounded by all the dark colored suits. However, our server was so sweet. We ordered a soda as neither one of us are drinkers. Little bottles of soda were adorable. The crisp baguettes were hot and fresh and the butter perfectly shaped and creamy. My daughter ordered the chicken in brioche and asked for french fries. Other upscale restaurants would have looked at line she was crazy. Not here. And they were delicious. The portion was tremendous and we easily could have split the dish. I ordered the flambé torte with smoked bacon and onions. Delicious. My daughter was not fond of the tortes strong flavor so she passed. The food was very good, the service was exceptional. The only negative was the price and the fact it was a no tipping restaurant was nice, but because of the accommodating service I would have left a tip. All in all, I was happy my daughter gets this service on our special trip.
