Best Museum Restaurants in the U.S.
Just like this brilliantly interactive museum, this Olle Lundberg/Cathy Simon—designed café, with its steel tables and traffic cone—orange plastic chairs, appeals to visitors of all ages. Café owner Charles Phan is best known for his Vietnamese flagship, the Slanted Door. The café serves a global menu including steamed pork buns, organic black bean tacos and Moroccan lemon chicken, proving slow food can be served at a fast-food pace. Echoing museum architect Renzo Piano's innovative green design, the menu also highlights local and sustainable ingredients. themossroom.com/academy-cafe
