Museum dining in New York City has grown by leaps and bounds over the last ten years (mostly thanks to restaurateur Danny Meyer), and with it, so has museum drinking. The bar at MoMA’s The Modern adjoins one of the most well heeled places to eat in Midtown. Follow an unmarked corridor off the museum’s first floor to end up at the bar that, much like the best galleries, is awash in white with one glowing wall devoted to a photograph by German artist Thomas Demand. The close-up of brilliant green foliage lends an enchanted-forest feel to the graceful space and the whimsical cocktails.
