Midtown West9 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019
Chef Thomas Allan’s contemporary American menu at the Modern has earned the restaurant two Michelin stars as well as a three star review from The New York Times, but the space is equally impressive in itself. The main dining room and a sizable private dining room both offer coveted views of the MoMA’s Abby Aldrich Rockefeller sculpture garden, a calming reprieve from the cacophony of Midtown. The latter can seat up to 64 guests, while a restaurant buyout offers space for up to 100 seated. An expansive 2,800 bottle wine list, which has received Wine Spectator’s Grand award, is perhaps reason for celebration on its own.
