Mina’s review image


Not all museum restaurants are created equal. And Mina’s, the Greek small plates spot in MoMA PS1, is proof. Unlike most museum cafeterias or upscale restaurants that feel like museums themselves, Mina’s is both casual and pleasant. The bright space is ideal for a brunch or snack involving things like a creamy muhammara, perfectly oily anchovies, and an excellent Greek egg and cheese boat peinirli. Take someone here who likes natural wine, Sally Rooney books, and the color seafoam. They’ll want to move in. (And, FYI, you can get into MoMA PS1 for free anytime with proof of NYC residency).
