My husband and I are going to be in the city for a week in August. We'll be attending the ABA meeting, so we'll have some nighttime events to go to, but mostly we're there to eat!!
Anyway, one of the events we have to go to is a cocktail reception at MoMA. It's on a Saturday from 7-9pm, so we are thinking that we'll go for a late dinner at the Bar Room around 9ish. Is that a good choice? I've seen good things about the main dining room on here, but never very much about the Bar Room (doesn't mean it's not on here, not very good with the archives). We would do the main dining room, but I don't think we'll be super hungry after eating at the reception. If you wouldn't recommend the Bar Room, where would you recommend that is close to MoMA, but it doesn't have to be right around the corner. We're staying at Le Parker Meridian if that helps any. I know NOTHING about NYC, so neighborhoods and streets would be helpful. I'm trying to write it all down and I'm making a Google Map (yes, I'm a little OCD).
