In our youth, we remember museum cafes resembling a cafeteria. There were trays, salad bars and gelatinous desserts (not that we have anything against gelatin).
Museum food has really stepped up its game in recent years, with as Details magazine noted, the most well-known example probably being Danny Meyer's The Modern inside NYC's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Details pulled together a top five list of the other, maybe lesser-known best museum restaurants you should be checking out right now.
We've included the magazine's notes on the food below, but be sure to check out the Details article for info on each restaurant's buzz and the art you can expect to find there.
