Fine Dining in Fine Museums – A perfect finish to a visual feast
CityPASS is renowned for providing travelers with exceptional adventures at fantastic prices. But what to do with all the money you’ll save? Sure, there’s always shopping for souvenirs, but what about something a little different? How about celebrating your savvy traveler instincts – not to mention indulging your taste buds – with an artful meal in a museum setting?
New York City: After an afternoon of perusing Pollocks and wallowing in Warhols at the The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), guests can enjoy an equally colorful repast at The Modern. Winner of the 2006 James Beard Foundation Awards for both “Best New Restaurant” and “Outstanding Restaurant Design,” The Modern is the place to be seen and well fed. The menu features mouthwatering French-American cuisine crafted by Alsatian-born Executive Chef Gabriel Kreuther. Try a chilled Maine lobster salad or a Gewurztraminer-steamed Scottish salmon. Can’t decide? Try it all with the chef’s tasting menu.
Boston: Enjoy the city’s best weekend brunch at Bravo, located inside the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Chef Peter Agostinelli is renowned for his progressive American menu, featuring such tantalizing morsels as a vanilla-poached pear with Berkshire blue cheese, raisin-nut French toast and red wine risotto. Before or after the meal, fans of classic fashion can revel in the exhibit Scaasi: American Couturier (through June 19, 2011), or the fashion photography of American master Richard Avedon (through Jan. 17, 2011).
San Francisco: The California Academy of Sciences offers the Moss Room restaurant – living proof that organic, sustainable dining can be an elegant, succulent experience. Try the crispy sweetbreads or chilled early girl tomato soup … nothing humdrum here. Complementing this fare is a selective wine list featuring high-quality wines made by small producers. The Moss Room offers one of the most beautiful dining spaces in the country: hand-blown glass light pendants, Douglas fir tables, Carrara marble, and a dramatic living wall of fern, moss and stone.
