Consistently innovative menu that changes quarterly, or in thematically keeping with the origins and topics of major exhibits. Brunch is especially delicious. In good weather, the outside terrace offers a lovely al fresco dining experience.

This is a delightful place for members and their guests. The out-of-town membership is quite reasonable. The service is prompt and attentive and the food is quite good. It is a great place to relax after touring the galleries.
