So it’s good to know that NYC museum restaurants are becoming serious draws of their own, even earning Michelin stars.
Here’s our list of a dozen museum restaurants and cafes that exhibit great taste on your plate.
Take the NYC subway to Paris.
As a culinary complement to the Brooklyn Museum’s new exhbition Pierre Cardin : Future Fashion, the museum’s full-service restaurant has been transformed into the legendary Maxim’s de Paris, and is offering fine French dining at affordable prices.
The Norm is now Maxim’s at The Norm, as a salute to the legendary restaurant Cardin has owned since 1981.
Maxim’s de Paris is an Art Nouveau masterpiece which has been both the world’s most famous restaurant and the most expensive. It is also a designated French historical monument.
Through Jan. 5, while the Cardin exhibit is at the Brooklyn Museum, Maxim’s at The Norm is offering a French-forward a la carte menu along with a prix fixe option of dishes inspired by Maxim’s de Paris’s cookbook, Chez Maxim.
At $45, it is one the city’s most accessibly priced French prix fixe menus, and just $3 more than the annual NYC Restaurant Week deals.
