RW at The Modern - Bar Room

Going tonight. What are your thoughts? What are the must-order dishes? Thanks.

  1. I have not seen the RW menu, but I think the tarte flambee is one is the nicest plates of food in the city. Simple but delicious.

    1. Also, will the RW menu be enough food so we don't leave hungry? Thanks

        According to my experiences last year (I'm not going this year), the portions were large enough for you to feel satiated and their RW menu was based on items on their regular menu.


      2. Went last night and thought it was great. The tart flambee is definitely the largest of the starters but not necessarily the most interesting. There were two of us and we shared everything. To start, we had the sausage (awesome) and the scallops, which were excellent. For the main course, I would highly suggest the duck confit. We also go the beer battered cod, which I wasn't such a fan of...nothing special. The swordfish looked great. If you are hungry, don't get the hanger steak cause it's only 4 ounces. Desserts were delicious - the hazelnut one was small but very good and the deconstructed cheesecake was a larger portion that was really tasty. Enjoy!

          Thanks! Would you suggest we order the tart flambee or another starter in addition to the price fixe? Or will we be fine with just the price fixe? We too will be sharing everything.
