Dress Code Question: The Modern (Main Dining Room)

It's Jacket Required, that much I know. I'm not sure if I can get back to my hotel and there in time for my reservation tonight - Can I get by wearing nice jeans with a black jacket?

  1. Others may disagree with me, but I don't think jeans are proper attire for The Modern.

    1. I would suggest giving them a call and double-checking. I have never eaten there but it sounds like they would be strict about that policy.

      1. i was eating in the bar area last week and saw this young very attractive couple leaving the main dining room. the man was wearing jeans and a graphic t-shirt under his jacket. and he walked by the host stand he handed them back their jacket.

        1. Yes--I think you'll be fine, as you would at most high end NYC restaurants these days.

          1. In the main dining room I don't think I would wear jeans, but I'm not sure what their official dress code is. Usually if jackets are required, there is a no jeans policy. I would call the restaurant and ask.
