Solving the Dinner Dilemma

Dinner In New York was solved by Epicurious, the website that catalogues the recipes and recommendations of Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines.

I took its advice and went to one of the designated "hot spots" -- The Modern -- which is housed in the Museum of Modern Art on 53rd Street. The main dining room wasn't open (closed Sundays), but The Bar Room was jumping and, besides being an attractive post-modern venue, the food was delicious.

I had braised octopus with potato salad to start; duck confit (which those who read my post on my dreadful experience with duck at a St. John's, Nfld. restaurant will know I adore) with lyonnaise potatoes and frisee (yes I know it has an accent, but I can't find it in blogger) salad; and, for dessert, truly creamy vanilla and coffee ice cream. With a glass of red from the South of France, and a bottle of eau gaseuse, c'etait un bon fin de la journee. (Again, how do you do the accents?)
