Founded by Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group, The Modern is a Michelin-starred, contemporary American restaurant at the Museum of Modern Art. Helmed by Executive Chef Abram Bissell, the restaurant features refined, unexpectedly playful dishes that highlight exceptional ingredients and seasonality in three distinct culinary experiences: a bold prix fixe menu in the dining room overlooking works by Miró, Matisse, and Picasso in MoMA's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, an à la carte menu in the lively Bar Room, and a bespoke tasting menu in the heart of the kitchen at the Kitchen Table. Complementing Chef Bissell's menus, Master Sommelier Michaël Engelmann's extensive selection of wines showcases exceptional diversity and value in wines both classic and emerging regions. The Modern's service is characterized by warmth and approachability, with an unwavering commitment to excellence and a focus on creating unique experiences for guests. With its serene atmosphere and modern aesthetic, the restaurant's design by the New York-based architecture firm Bentel & Bentel offers a welcome escape from the bustling Midtown neighborhood it calls home.
Since its debut in 2005, The Modern has earned two Michelin stars, three stars from The New York Times, the Grand Award from Wine Spectator and four James Beard Awards, including Best New Restaurant, Outstanding Wine Service, and Outstanding Restaurant Design.
