Fine dining meets fine art at the Museum of Modern Art's high-end French-American restaurant, run by celebrated restaurateur Danny Meyer. As at other Meyer establishments, such as Gramercy Tavern, The Modern is divided into two virtually separate entities: the Dining Room and the Bar Room. Refined and appropriately modern, the main space has soaring ceilings, crisp white walls and grand floral bouquets and plenty of natural light streams in from windows overlooking the museum's spectacular sculpture garden. Chef Gabriel Kreuther's Alsatian-inspired four-course prix fixe and tasting menus change regularly, but might include "pralines" of foie gras terrine, chorizo-crusted cod or maple-brined Berkshire pork tenderloin. (The à la carte menu — wild mushroom soup, grilled diver scallops and Black Angus beef tenderloin — is only available in the less formal, more boisterous Bar Room, where the sophisticated crowd of art aficionados can also make selections from the impressive 900-strong wine list.) Opulent desserts like milk chocolate and hazelnut dacquoise with raspberry sorbet are carted around the room like trophies; all pair nicely with a pot of MoMA-blend tea. The Bar Room accepts walk-ins, though the wait may be daunting. When the museum is closed, access the restaurant through a dedicated entrance on West 53rd Street.
