The Modern - Suggestions?

Truly I'm not going there for the drinks, but I think I might try the Lychee soda! Sounds like a good choice.

Okay, thanks! I'm really pumped for my first 'fine dining' experience!

Can anyone tell me what they think about RGR saying that everyone wore jackets and that jackets were required? On OpenTable it says Smart Casual, and everywhere else it says smart casual.

Does it depend where you're seated?

The Modern - Suggestions?

Hi, I'm heading into NYC next week for my birthday and have made reservations for The Modern.

Firstly, I unfortunately cannot bring a jacket, I called the restaurant and asked what their dress code was, to which they replied that they have no dress code. Would I look out of place if I wore a plain blue button-down shirt with khakis? I have looked at pictures of the place, and it is sort of mixed attire, some people with jackets, some people with dress shirts, even sweaters. I just don't want to look out of place.

If anyone has eaten there before, would you mind suggesting some dishes to me that you found to be enjoyable? I know the portions there are very small, but I don't really want anything that I can eat in one bite.

Thanks in advance!

I've Got a Problem...

They were closed when I called them today. They aren't open on sundays or mondays, and I wanted to make a reservation fairly soon.

No, that's the problem. The Jacket will wrinkle if I put it into a backpack.

I'm looking at Corton now. It looks like you don't have to wear a suit there. Am I correct or is the clothing predominantly suits?

Well, I guess the problem is that we are taking the ferry to the city, maybe going to a museum or something along those lines, then going to a restaurant. We can't take a car, so I can't hang a suit in the car, and it would be extremely difficult to carry a garment bag/suit around Manhattan.

I was looking at Corton, if I wore a nice button-down shirt with a tie there would it be acceptable?

I've Got a Problem...

Okay, so I am a 16 year old boy (I know, I know, just please read!) . I have ALWAYS wanted to go to an upscale, michelin-starred restaurant in NYC. I live in New Jersey, and am 1 hour away from the city. My mother told me I could pick a restaurant to go to Labor Day weekend for my birthday. I had settled on Daniel Boloud's restaurant. I asked my mom, but then we encountered a problem.

We NEVER drive to the city because of all of the traffic and congestion because it scares my mom. She said driving was out of the question. As all of you (I hope) know, Daniel is a Jacket Required restaurant, so I'm assuming a jacket is required. We can't take suitcases or garment bags, because it would be too much trouble, especially if we might not even stay in a hotel at all. Is there any way I can transport a jacket in a small bag that I can take on a ferry and taxi to take to a hotel?

If there is no solution for that, (I am open to anything right now!!) can anyone suggest a restaurant where I would be able to wear a nice button-down shirt with a tie and get away with it? Preferably well-known and michelin-starred if possible.

Please help!

Sincerely, Mike
