restaurants w/ sleek modern minimal decor
It's my mom's birthday next week & I want to take her out for a birthday dinner. I would love some suggestions. She's a big fan of restaurants that have a sleek modern design (minimal a plus!). I want to say "style over substance" but it would help if the food was good too! Any cuisine will do except Indian & Thai. She's a hip lady, but it doesn't have to be too "sceney" either. I'm also willing to splurge a bit.
FYI She's already been to the Modern at MoMa & really liked it if that helps!
Veritas would be perfect since you can have both style and delicious food! Chef Scott Bryan's New American cuisine is superb and, of course, there's the extraordinary wine list. Service is friendly and professional. The dining room is small with sophisticated minimalist decor, perfect lighting, and a conversation-friendly noise level. Note: Be sure you are seated in the dining room. You do not want a table in the bar area.
Happy Birthday to your mom and Bon Appetit!
