Modern Bar Room- thoughts???

Hey, considering dining in the Bar Room at Modern on Friday evening for an early dinner. I know they accept walk-ins and it is not jackets required like their upscale counterpart The Modern dining room which makes it very appealing.

I have heard from many they even enjoy eating at the Bar Room over the Dining Room. After checking out both menus, I actually think the Bar Room menu appeals to me more. More choices and more inventive options in my opinion. I like the fact that you can basically create your own menu by choosing from the "one", "two" (both appetizers), and "three" (half sized entrees). The prices do seem a bit high however, considering the portion sizes. But, if the food is worth it I do not mind springing for a great meal.

Questions are....What is everyone's opinion on the food here? Will I wait long without a reservation at around 5:30 on Friday night? Is it worth it/not? I know the chef Gabriel K (forget the whole last name) won the James Beard award for best chef so he must be doing something for Pete's sake.

I was considering ordering the duck breast, pork belly, and duck confit as my three courses. That alone will set me back $60, however, like I said I do not mind if the food is worth it. They all sound really delicious! Oh and the beignets and sundae sound pretty awesome for dessert as well haha.
