The Dining Room At The Met
The Dining Room at the Met is surprisingly void of any art or flashy interior design, but that’s part of its charm. The fourth-floor restaurant was once only open to members and senior staff, which sort of explains why it has the feel of an extremely nice break room. It’s a calm space with big windows overlooking Central Park where you can take a break from thinking too hard about the Flemish Baroque era and eat something more upscale than what you'll find at the museum eatery downstairs. The seasonal menu changes often, but past highlights include a rich short rib and fresh scallop fettuccine with some briny sea urchin.
