The Modern is looking for Pastry Cooks to join their growing team!

The Modern is a Michelin-starred contemporary American restaurant at the Museum of Modern Art. 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 and an à la carte menu in the lively Bar Room. An extensive selection of wines showcases exceptional diversity and value in both classic and emerging regions. Our 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.

  • Maintain a sound and inquisitive working knowledge of common seasonal ingredients and retain new knowledge of ingredients used in our cuisine.
  • Effectively participate in a professionally run service period, restocking stations as needed and performing last minute or special-order prep needs with a calm sense of urgency. 
  • Communicate effectively and hospitably with all teams throughout the day and throughout service.
  • Maintain an orderly and neat work area displaying calm professionalism to promote food quality and reduce waste. Follow all recipes, portioning, proper storage and FIFO to minimize waste.

What we need from you:

  • 1+ years experience as a Pastry Cook
  • Ability to walk or stand for long periods of time
  • English fluency and additional languages preferred, but not required     

What you’ll get from us:

  • Hourly rate of $18 - $20
  • Comprehensive Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance

  • Matched 401(k) to help you invest in your future
  • Generous Employee Referral Program

Part of Union Square Hospitality Group

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 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.

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 Restaurant Design.

We offer comprehensive medical, dental, vision insurance, 401K, flex pay, life insurance, employee dining program and paid vacation. USHG provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.
