I visited the Bar Room at the Modern for the third time in about 18 months, because it is outstanding in every way and because I wanted to introduce my English friend to sophisticated yet comfortable American dining at its best. We were not disappointed.

It is very good. But noisy there. A real happening and eye opening. Worth the money to see how a top notch place comes together. Try it. You should like it But not intimate
