New York's Top Restaurants
Courtesy of The Modern
Relax, the art at MoMA will still be there tomorrow. So will the museum’s gift shop and the rest of Fifth Avenue’s canyon of retail and the rest of your must-see list. Slow down. Treat yourself to a nice meal in a restaurant of subdued sophistication, a polished place where the city’s edges are smoothed over and everything’s in its right place. Or as it’s known locally: a Danny Meyer restaurant. The Modern has views of the sculpture garden, and the menu is all French-inflected suave goodness, but the real allure here is its sense of civilized escape.
