Modern Art, Modern Food

After the viewing the de Kooning exhibit, I met Preston for lunch at The Modern. This is Danny Meyer’s restaurant inside MoMA and it is wonderful.

Here’s what we ate, and every single bite was sublime:

Appetizer, Both: DIVER SCALLOP, YELLOWFIN TUNA AND SCOTTISH SALMON

Main Course, Preston: CHORIZO-CRUSTED COD with White Coco Bean Puree and Harissa Oil

Main Course, Tami: CREEKSTONE FARM BEEF TENDERLOIN “MIGNONETTE” with Butternut Squash, Chestnut and Juniper Berry Jus

Dessert, Preston: MILK CHOCOLATE AND HAZELNUT DACQUOISE with Raspberry Sorbet

Dessert, Tami: MANJARI CHOCOLATE PALET with Tahitian Vanilla Cremeux and Salted Caramel Ice Cream

(Sorry for the caps — I copied from the official menu. I have no ability to remember dishes once I’ve left the restaurant.)
