The Modern is Danny Meyer’s first chef-driven restaurant, and only a chef as well-trained as Gabriel Kreuther, who spent ten years as the first executive chef at Jean Georges could take the helm so capably. Separated from the café by a frosted glass partition, the dining room at The Modern inside the Museum of Modern Art is sleek, echoing the aesthetic of elegant minimalism of the museum. 2009 James Beard Award winning Chef Gabriel Kreuther creates a menu of contemporary French-American cuisine with an emphasis on refined rusticity. Because the kitchen at The Modern pivots on precision, it’s an excellent place to stage.
