Best Museum Restaurants in the U.S.
Michelangelo's earliest-known painting, "The Torment of St. Anthony," stands out among the Kimbell's small but special collection. The sunlit vaulted café is part of the original museum building designed by Louis Kahn (the museum has a new Renzo Piano–designed wing). The café is set up just as its name suggests: Diners choose one of three plate sizes, and fill them with chef Shelby Schafer's light dishes, like her nutty quinoa tabbouleh or a creamy spinach–and–roasted garlic quiche. Friday evenings, musicians perform in the adjacent enclosed courtyard. kimbellart.org/visit/dining
