Not Coming Soon to a Museum Cafe Near You

Has anyone else noticed how really good food is turning up at just about every museum in New York?

Cafe Sabarsky seriously raised the bar on museum cuisine a couple years ago, turning the Neue Galerie into a destination for German-Austrian food. Not wanting to play second fiddle to anyone, MoMA made sure it had restaurant-quality meals (at restaurant-quality prices) as it planned its reopening. Even The Met is playing along with its new basement cafeteria. They don't have table service, but the food there is still better than what's on offer in most cities I have to visit for the day job.

So with the trend toward quality eats firmly established, I think it's safe to say that we won't be seeing any of these things being served at New York museums anytime soon. Too bad. The chilled celery log looks like a winner.
