A lovely room within the museum. Felt very posh. I had trout and a green salad; my husband had pork w/mixed vegetables; great chardonnay and beer and only $34 for both. A nice spot to eat and relax as you're walking through the museum.

We went smartish. No shorts and tee shirt. I think it is a more upmarket type of restaurant. Always feel better dressing oneself on these occasions. Can't go wrong then.
