Located in the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Café Modern is the perfect place to relax and recharge while enjoying the simple pleasures of unique, exquisitely prepared food. With its serene reflecting pools visible through curving, floor-to-ceiling windows, the Café feels like it’s floating on a wide quiet pond. Chef Dena Peterson’s menu is as inspiring as the setting. Changing with the seasons, the menu always begins with artful twists on American comfort classics, and then journeys all over the world for truly eclectic and inspired creations. Guests enjoy a menu emphasizing American comfort classics with an Asian flair. The wine and cocktail lists will liven up your lunch or brunch, yet still allow the food to remain in the spotlight.
