  • Begin or end your MoMA trip at this award-winning restaurant, which showcases German artist Thomas Demand. Look closely - the forest is not real but created with 270,000 intricate paper leaves.
  • After the Museum closes, head over to The Modern for the MoDERN MaRTINI. Cilantro-infused Tanqueray and fresh lime juice.
  • Get the tarte flamb (flammekueche). It's the Alsatian version of pizza! Split it, though--it's crazy rich.
  • ! . . , foursquare. -

  • Michael Psilakis, of Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, is a big fan of the liverwurst and other French specialties at The Modern, inside the MOMA, in New York, NY. Find more tips at FN Local.
  • A sopa de cogumelos selvagens maravilhosa.
  • @FelixSalmon says the ice cubes are disappointing. Bring your own! Seriously though, this place is better than Per Se. Top 5 restaurants in NYC. Just ask @museeYUM!
  • The Modern has views of MoMas sculpture garden, and the menu is all French-inflected suave goodness, but the real allure here is its sense of civilized escape.
  • i want to become a regular here.
  • Quin dijo que los restaurantes de los museos son malos?! Este es muy bueno!
  • Take a seat in the restaurant to go for the four course prix fixe or tasting menu. You'll find that the Alsatian Dumplings, Baked Quail, and Soft-Poached Eggs are all executed to perfection.
  • So right now as of dec 20 try the truffle infused drink - I think truffles are unicorn droppings that create shrooms and grow in a magical forest!!!
  • Try the P&H Soda Mod Pop. Delicious.
  • And the cafeteria is so much more than that!
  • Sommelier Free Sundays! In the Bar Room, the corkage fee is waived and customers receive a wine key so you can open and pour your own wines at the table! Cheers!
  • the address is actually: 9 W 53rd, 11 W is the education address for the museum...
  • Disappointing ice cubes
  • Si vas a NYC y no pasas por el estuviste all.
  • Great exhibit by Marina Abramovic!
