Fodor's Review

Side by side on the ground floor of the New York MoMA are two spots that compete for the title of the country's best museum restaurant. The food is no longer by Alsatian chef Gabriel Kreuther, but restaurateur Danny Meyer will, no doubt, make sure that whoever takes over will keep the kitchens turning out impeccable food. The formal Modern dining room features a view of the museum's sculpture garden while the more accessible and popular Bar Room lies just beyond a partition.
