The Modern’s inventive desserts are a decadent way to finish your lunch or dinner at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star New York City restaurant. Offered as part of the four-course prix fixe and eight-course tasting menus in the main dining room, the desserts range from exotic — think caramel parfait with mango ravioli, coconut-lemongrass tapioca and ten flavor sorbet — to the expected, like the coffee and vanilla sundae with roasted pecans. Though some creations are more experimental than others, none of the items on pastry chef Marc Aumont’s menu fail to impress. For an additional treat, spoil yourself via the chocolate cart that features 16 different types of chocolate preparations, including chocolate lollipops, chocolate candies and molded chocolates.
