Executive Chef Thomas Allan's refined, unexpectedly playful dishes highlight exceptional ingredients and seasonality in three distinct culinary experiences: a bold prix fixe menu in The Modern, 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 Allan’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.
