The Modern in Fort Lee Now Offering Poolside Service for Residents From Ventana Restaurant & Lounge

FORT LEE, N.J. — The Modern in Fort Lee, N.J. has announced the launch of weekend poolside lunch service for residents of both of its luxury residential towers, courtesy of Ventanas Restaurant & Lounge. Ventanas servers will be onsite at each rooftop pool every weekend throughout the summer, allowing residents, their families and their guests to enjoy The Modern’s outdoor amenities and full-service atmosphere. This seasonal perk is yet another example of the upscale community’s resort-like living experience and its focus on total comfort and convenience.

A more casual rendition of the restaurant’s Cuban-Asian fusion offerings, Ventana’s pool menu will feature tasty appetizers, refreshing salads, and classic sandwiches, along with dogs and burgers hot off the rooftop grill stations. A children’s menu and dessert options are also available, keeping lunchtime for kids and parents both delicious and hassle-free.

“Following the exciting additions of the finished public park and Ventanas Restaurant & Lounge to The Modern, we’re pleased to now offer its amazing cuisine, curated by David Burke, to our valued residents and their guests poolside,” said Victor Cividini, Senior Vice President at SJP Properties. “This exclusive resident culinary experience and the availability of beautiful outdoor amenities will continue to set The Modern apart as the top luxury residential community in New Jersey.”

Ventanas Restaurant & Lounge is a premier American-Asian-Cuban restaurant from local restaurateur Alexander Duran and culinary icon David Burke. The restaurant totals 7,000 square feet, with both indoor and outdoor dining, and sits within a beautifully-landscaped, two-acre public park situated between The Modern’s two towers. Inspired by Central Park, The Modern’s park enhances walkability and connectivity within Fort Lee, and provides a green space for recreation and enjoyment, with walking paths and integrated water features.

Residents of The Modern and their guests can enjoy poolside service from 12 to 6 p.m. every weekend, weather permitting, for the duration of the community’s pool season. All flatware and utensils are included with lunch service and payment is accepted by cash or card.

Designed by renowned architecture firm Elkus Manfredi Architects, The Modern offers some of the Gold Coast’s most awe-inspiring views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. But what truly sets The Modern apart is the inclusion of an unprecedented 150,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor resort-style amenities spread across the community’s two towers, allowing residents to feel like they’re living in a five-star hotel. Each of The Modern’s 900 residences features striking floor-to-ceiling windows, oak hardwood floors, walk-in closets, washers and dryers, stone bathrooms and opulent open-layout kitchens.
