Bar at the Modern--best dishes?
The Hub & I are going to the Bar at the Modern for our anniversary. We aren't stinking rich but we love good food & wine (which we don't believe has to be expensive). I've read alot about the BatM so we're excited to try it for our special occasion dinner. Would love some recommendations as to which dishes we should try (very intrigued by the egg in a jar thing). Also I noticed they have some reasonable wines on the menu, has anyone tried any of them?
Egg in the jar and the beignets are my favorite two dishes at The Modern. I also love the Hinny Kick cocktail -- my favorite in NYC.

We were there this past weekend and loved the jamon iberico, egg in a jar, hamachi tartare, duck breast, and beignets.
In the past, we've enjoyed the wild mushroom soup, lamb saddle, and seared foie gras. I have also liked the tarte flambée, liverwurst, salmon, and pork belly, but not as much. The desserts are excellent, especially the beignets. I've also enjoyed the cheesecake and strudel.
I'd say the egg in a jar and seared duck breast are probably my top two savories.
