After reading these boards for too many hours every day my husband and I chose to go to The Modern for our first wedding anniversary (we were supposed to go last Saturday but Irene ruined our plans, so we were able to push our reservation back to tonight)! We are planning to do the tasting menu since my husband swooned when he saw the tasting menu that they have on their website, but I just wanted to get some opinions. Has anyone been recently enough that they have an idea about what is on the tasting menu now? Is the tasting menu the best way to go at The Modern, or do people recommend going a la carte? We eat pretty much everything, so I'm not concerned about there being something on the tasting menu that we would be afraid to try.
We are graduate students so we don't get to eat like this all the time, but we save up our money to have big birthday dinners and a big anniversary dinner every year, so we do have some experience with tasting menus. In the past we have done WD-50, Le Bernardin (the night we got engaged), Morimoto, and Aquavit (I'm saving EMP for my birthday choice).
Thanks so much!
