Destination Divas Inside Moda Restaurant – A PictorialBy Delaina Dixon | January 21, 2011 | Entertainment
The DivaGals were recently invited to dine at Moda Restaurant Bar and Lounge, located inside The Flatotel NYC in midtown Manhattan.
We were escorted to a booth inside the dining room, which has a chic rustic feel with streamlined booths and a full wall candle display.
We eagerly dug into our arugula salad, dressed with beets, raisins and tomatoes, which were drizzled with a balsamic reduction vinaigrette. It also comes with goat cheese.
Our main entrees, salmon with a pumpkin seed crust and topped with fennel, and the Chicken Piccata, which came with fingerling potatoes and capers, were unpretentious winter comfort food choices that were hearty and flavorful. We loved that Sergio paired our meal with a full-bodied Malbec.
After our meal, we enjoyed the dinner aperitif that accompanied our warm molten lava cake topped with vanilla ice cream. A simply good choice.
