Midtown West

The Bar Room at the Modern

9 W 53rd St.
New York, NY, 10019, United States
TEL: (212) 333-1220

Located in the renowned Modern restaurant at MoMA, the Bar Room is the livelier, more casual counterpart to the Dining Room. Inspired by the Bauhaus movement, the space is designed with reflective columns and ceiling panels, black leather seating, and a large photograph of a forest by German artist Thomas Demand. Created by James Beard Award-winning chef Gabriel Kreuther, the menu includes Alsatian-influenced small plates, large plates, and sharable “bites.” Inventive cocktails and more than 900 wine selections complement such popular dishes as the roasted Long Island duck breast with peppercorn-crusted apples and pistachio-truffle dipping sauce.

Insider Tip:

If you want to try a particular dessert, such as the signature beignets, consider ordering it with your entrées, as desserts occasionally sell out by the end of the night.
