I was in New York on business last Friday. I ended up eating dinner at the Modern, the new restaurant at the Musem of Modern Art. I'm always in search of good restaurants to eat at when I'm by myself, and I'd recommend dinner at the bar if you're traveling alone to New York. The restaurant is lively, the service friendly, and the food terrific. Plus, you're given enough room at the bar to sit and eat comfortably. Now, the tab is steep, but at least the food and wine is worth the price.
