How could The Modern not be hot? Located in the renovated and expanded Museum of Modern Art, the restaurant was created by Danny Meyer, proprietor of perennial favorite Union Square Cafe, and Alsatian chef Gabriel Kreuther of Atelier. In this stark white-walled space, they made not one but two restaurants: a hip, casual Bar Room and a refined dining room whose windows overlook the sculpture garden's Calders, Mirós, and Picassos. The Bar Room's menu of small plates is already the favorite with diners, but both spaces have ravishing Danish modern settings and Meyer's famously perfect service. Can't score a table? About half the seats in the Bar Room are first-come, first-serve.
