Modern Restaurant and Lounge is long in history. Starting out as Modern Restaurant & Pizzeria in 1987 off of Russell Avenue in New Rochelle, Modern became famous for its homemade Italian dinners and pasta dishes, as well as old fashioned brick oven pizza. Even before that, the Modern name originally came from a bread company established in 1920. Modern evolved into one of Westchester County’s first pizzerias, and became a favorite spot for many Westchester residents to enjoy home-made food and great pizza in a casual, friendly environment. The tradition of the good, old fashioned taste of authentic Italian food and friendly service is what Modern has become known for.
Continuing in that tradition, on December 30, 2012, Modern Restaurant & Pizzeria served its last meal at 12 Russell Avenue, and opened its doors at its new location, 310 Huguenot Street. A year and a half in the making, the new Modern Restaurant and Lounge features a stunning yet simple décor, complete with a lounge area, a bar that seats 20, custom hand-blown glass lighting, a catering room that holds parties up to 85 people, and a convenient pick-up and take-out location on its own street (Westchester Place).
Come see what everyone is talking about and enjoy a wonderful meal in our beautiful venue. Bring your family in to meet our family and experience the tradition, history and good taste at Modern Restaurant and Lounge.
