Corton vs. The Modern - which to choose?

rrems | Apr 30, 2009 04:51 PM

I am planning a special occasion dinner for next month. We have not yet been to either of these, and I am having difficulty deciding. I've read all the posts about each of them, and the Modern seems to get pretty much unanimous praise, while Corton gets much more mixed reviews. Can anyone who has been to BOTH give me a comparision of the food? Decor and service are not a concern. I have looked at both menus, and am surprised that Corton looks less interesting. Is it more creative than the menu descriptions imply? We really like unusual and intricate flavor combinations. We would not order a tasing menu, but would have different a la carte dishes and share tastes. Also, extra tastes (amuses bouche, mignardises, etc.) make a meal more interesting for us. Which of these provides more?

Thank you all for any help you can provide.
