Useful information


It goes without saying that The Modern has one of the city’s most prized locations, designed to capture the iconic feel of the MoMA in which it is seamlessly housed. Art enthusiasts have always appreciated its timeless and glorious surrounds; and thanks to an ambitious nip-tuck, they are sure to notice the improved acoustics, which facilitate quiet conversation and match the calm of the view over the sculpture garden. The state-of-the-art kitchen allows the team to grow into its full creative potential—both in the dining room and at the buzzy bar. But for a truly special experience, book the chef's table (complete with a multi-course tasting menu) inside the kitchen.

Chef Abram Bissell and crew are wowing these globe-trotting patrons with excellent food and warm, well-timed service. Appealing dishes showcase clean flavors and may include roasted cauliflower with crab butter, almond-cauliflower purée and crabmeat. The juicy milk-fed pork from Québec is enriched with wine and butter for a gloriously decadent treat.

Banana bread pudding with Armagnac crème anglaise comes encased in a chocolate cylinder and is topped with banana ice cream for a treat that will leave you with sweet dreams.
