Modern Restaurant & Lounge

New Rochelle, NY, US

A lower Westchester County, New York, hot spot, Modern Restaurant & Lounge is a gathering place that attracts a casual, vibrant crowd each evening. Known for decades by locals as “the Modern,” or just Modern, the beloved pizza and southern Italian restaurant recently transferred from its small, intimate location to a spacious new, Manhattan-style venue with arched windows and vaulted ceilings. Modern Restaurant & Lounge patrons enjoy a convenient, downtown New Rochelle location on Huguenot Street that features a full bar and lounge area, as well as valet parking on weekends.

Favorite menu items include starters such as hot and cold antipastos, baked clams oreganata, and fried calamari arrabiata. Entrees range from hearty old world favorites such as veal parmigiana to chicken francese, a delicately battered breast sauteed in white wine, butter, and lemon. Modern also features a full complement of pastas, as well as chops and steaks, including the rosemary demiglaze rack of lamb, which comes with the day’s potato and vegetable. Pizzas include traditional cheese and tomato, as well as Sicilian and healthy, gluten-free options.
