The Modern

9 W. 53rd St.
Manhattan, NY 10019
Midtown West


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 two distinct culinary experiences: the dining room, overlooking works by Miró, Matisse and Picasso in MoMA's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, features a bold prix fixe menu and the lively Bar Room has an à la carte menu. Complementing chef Bissell's menus, master sommelier Michaël Engelmann's extensive selection of wines showcases exceptional diversity and value from both classic and emerging regions.
