9 W. 53rd St., New York, NY 10019, United States

If you ask someone where they want to go out to eat, few consider a museum. The proprietors of Modern, located inside the Museum of Modern Art, aim to change that. With a goal of taking museum dining to new heights, they turned to Alsatian chef Gabriel Kreuther to whip up some French-American dishes of a fine dining caliber. The result is dishes like grilled Sullivan county foie gras, long island duck breast, and Alaskan king crab salad with Osetra caviar. Marked by refined Bauhaus décor, consisting of a clean, black and white palette juxtaposed with elaborate flower arrangements on every table, and overlooking the museum’s sculpture garden, Modern serves the pièce de résistance.
