The Modern Prix Fixe recommendations?
Anyone have any recommendations for dinners at the Modern (dining room) off their prix fixe menu?

The tartare is always top shelf, although I have had the mussels as well and they are excellent.
The risotto for course 2 is where it is at.
For course 3, the veal, while tasty, looked unappealing on the plate. The lamb was great, as is the chicken (i know!), and the lobster.
Quote from a recent post of mine:
The standout dishes were the Damier, the sturgeon and sauerkraut tart, hamachi and sea urchin tart, veal tenderloin, poussin breast and baba au rhum, but really every dish we had was excellent, and as always the presentation of each dish was stunning.
