If given the choice where would you select? I will be going to one of them tonight most likely. Both menus sound equally delicious and both have been on my must try list for some time.

Here is what my proposed meal would be after viewing both menus

Aureole

Starter- CRISPY SOFT SHELL BLUE CRAB - BELGIAN ENDIVE, GRANNY SMITH APPLE, SMOKED PAPRIKA, "SAUCE RÉMOULADE"

Main- CANADIAN LOBSTER TAIL VS. BERKSHIRE PORK BELLY- SQUASH, PORCINI MUSHROOMS, CAPE GOOSEBERRIES, JURA WINE, ALMOND EMULSION

Dessert- This was tough either.. CHERRY BRIOCHE PANZANELLA
ALMOND CREAM, ROASTED CHERRY SORBET, FENNEL or SWEET CORN SOUFFLÉ
BLUEBERRY CHUTNEY, FROZEN YOGURT, BROWN BUTTER

Cost $84, but 15% off for the soft opening.

Bar Room at Modern

Starter- Roasted Long Island Duck Breast with peppercorn-crusted apples and toasted
pistachio-truffle dipping sauce

Mid course- Beer Braised Pork Belly with sweet pea purée and ginger jus

Entree- Duck Confit with shishito pepper hash, passion fruit and natural jus

Dessert- Beignets with maple ice cream, mango, dipping sauces or Caramel and Vanilla sundae with pecan biscuit (I may even decide to get both since the portions I have heard are small)

Cost- About $70-75
