Restaurant Week: The Modern - Bar Room
I just returned from a meal at the modern - bar room, and I must say that it was the best restaurant week meal I have eaten. Unlike most places, the modern allows you to choose any appetizer, main, and dessert on the menu. I went with three friends, so was able to sample four of each. Every single dish was fantastic. In particular I would recommend: (Appetizers) the Scallops and the Veal & Goat Cheese terrine, (Main) the Duck Confit and the Quail, and any of the desserts.
Wow! That is an amazing deal! unfortunately, i've been there and hate their food...but still...
How much? 35?
I agree, i went last summer and really really enjoyed it. I think ive had better RW meals, but it was very very very good!
i was there last night! it was excellent. i had the duck confit--and i really enjoyed it....considered the quail, and now that you gave it a glowing recommendation i'm almost tempted to go back. ha
in response to bastet, i went last year for RW, which was good but---this year blew that out of the water.
Went there last night with three friends as well. I had the scallops for my first course, gnocchi for my entree and the salted caramel parfait for dessert. All three were amazing. I also tried a bite of my friends' Arctic char tartare and goat cheese salad appetizers, and the hangar steak and quail entrees. The goat cheese and hangar steak were excellent; I wasn't actually blown away by the quail but then, I'm not sure how much I like quail to begin with. The barley with chorizo on the side tasted too hammy to me.
I would definitely go back, but alas, being less than a year out of college I doubt that will happen unless I find myself a sugar daddy...
We just came back from The Bar Room last weekend and thought the food was really overrated. The Duck Confit was served in a strawberry sauce that was so overwhelmingly sweet that my tooth ached. My boyfriend had Salmon in a Fennel sauce that was equally disappointing. None of the flavors really worked well together and both dishes were served at room temperature. We also had their egg in a jar, which was really nothing special. The only dish I did enjoy was the gnocchi, but even then, I've had better (Cafe Zuni in SF).
