Oakland's Carnegie Museum of Art traded in an uninspired museum eatery for a proper dining destination in Carnegie Café, a modern American dining room from James Beard Award-semi-finalist Chef Sonja Finn. Seated at Eames chairs in the glass-walled space, museum-goers select from a menu of salads, hot sandwiches made with bread baked in-house, and more elevated lunch plates like oysters on the half-shell and moules frites. An espresso and wine bar provide visitors with competing vices to augment their art viewing experience.
