Along with the art and the décor the dishes are contemporary American. Chef Abram Bissell's refined skills combine finesse with imagination to deliver playful dishes using seasonal ingredients allowing the menu to be reinvented on a regular basis. The Modern has held one michelin star since 2006 and has just recently received its well deserved second coveted star in the 2016 edition of the guide. I hope you enjoy my prix-fixe Dined There lunch at The Modern.

The Modern is the first restaurant I've dined at which applies a "No Tipping" policy. The Union Square Hospitality Group is one of the founders of this movement and I can attest that not only was service not affected, it was exceptional. For more information on the Hospitality Included initiative, click here. Lunch at The Modern was excellent and I highly suggest you pair it with your next visit to the MoMA. In the event that they are fully booked you can also enjoy their more casual Bar Room, lounge area or try your luck at the 24 seat bar top. If you want to savor an experience you'll definitely be sharing on social media, look into The Kitchen Table. This dinning option offers four front row seats in The Modern's kitchen for a 100% bespoke feast. For more information on The Modern visit www.TheModernNYC.com .
