Part of Union Square Hospitality Group

Taking museum dining to sophisticated new heights, The Modern is a fine dining restaurant located at the Museum of Modern Art featuring the original cuisine of Chef Abram Bissell and desserts by Pastry Chef Jiho Kim.

Founded by Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group, The Modern is a two Michelin-starred, contemporary American restaurant at the Museum of Modern Art.

Executive Chef Abram Bissell’s refined, unexpectedly playful dishes highlight exceptional ingredients and seasonality in three distinct culinary experiences: a bold prix fixe menu in the dining room overlooking 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, an extensive selection of wines showcases exceptional diversity and value in wines both classic and emerging regions. 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
