It’s hard to believe Danny Meyer’s Modern American Grill opened a year ago right around this time. You could celebrate Thanksgiving or the fact that Chef Floyd Cardoz has been back on the dining scene and as creative as ever. Either way, you’re in for a great meal. Chef Cardoz is offering Pumpkin Soup with crabmeat, and a very un-Thanksgiving (and delicious sounding) Lobster Egg Custard with sea urchin and bonito flakes. And those are only two of the appetizers. You’ll have plenty of entrees to choose from, including Heritage Turkey with corn bread stuffing and gravy, and Quinoa Mustard Pilaf with mushrooms and chestnuts, communal sides included. And last but not least, a choice between four holiday inspired desserts including Chestnut Doughnuts with chocolate dipping sauce.
