The Modern

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: a bold prix fixe menu in the dining room overlooking works by Miró, Matisse, and Picasso in MoMA’s Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, and an à la carte menu in the lively Bar Room. 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.
