The Members Dining Room at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Venue Info

Museum membership has its perks, and at The Met, access to the Members Dining Room is among them. It doesn't have the buzz of any of the trending spots downtown, but the stately dining room feels like an experience from a more formal era. Contemporary American fare is given French and European touches, from honey-glazed duck breast with hominy and hazelnut mole to grilled octopus topped with fennel and sumac, and brought to you on white tablecloths. Mostly, though, it's just nice to indulge in some garlic-herb escargots after an afternoon of art.
