Welcome to one of Gotham's best restaurant locations, set inside the magnificent MoMA—even the door looks like a piece of art. Once inside, the scene endures with a bar that is a worthy destination in its own right: sometimes loud, always fun, and populated by everyone from real-life Carrie Bradshaws to the baristas who make their gourmet coffee in the morning. Beyond this, a fine dining area showcases stunning views of the sculpture gardens through floor-to-ceiling windows. While The Modern's visual appeal is dramatic, it pays equal attention to maintaining friendly service, a stylish yet celebratory vibe, and outstanding food. Homemade bread with goat's milk butter is a sublime prelude to starters like foie gras terrine, coated in poppy seeds with mango purée and a dab of Balsamic vinegar. Then, move on to a slow-poached farm egg served with squid ink spätzle, topped with a bit of black truffle. Meat courses may highlight a beautifully pink roasted rack of lamb with olives, fine herbs, and bacon fondue. Sweet dishes are sure to soothe as in a brittle filled with mango mousse, served with citrus mousseline and passion fruit sorbet. The chocolate sculptures are truly a site to see.

      Pros

      Das einzige Restaurant in NY in dem wir (trotz des großen Angebotes) schon mehrmals waren,weil wirklich alles perfekt ist. Sehr aufmerkamer Sevice, schöner Blick in den Garten, Geschmakserlebnisse und troztdem nicht steif.

      Cons

      Obwohl die schönsten Tische die mit der halbrunden Bank sind war es bei uns (3Personen) für den mittleren etwas beschwerlich.
