10 Museum Restaurants Worth Their Own Trip

For many museums these days, having a destination restaurant is as de rigueur as staging must-see blockbuster shows

Major museums—and even boutique ones—are busy attracting star chefs to create culinary masterpieces as part of their overall mission. Museums want bragging rights not only for the latest Picasso or Damien Hirst exhibition but for their buzzworthy restaurants.

It also makes business sense. While the public might stand in line to see a coveted collection, rarely do they revisit after the initial outing. But food lovers will frequent a hot restaurant more than once. These beautifully designed culinary meccas attract larger audience of locals and travelers who may then stroll through the museum to view other exhibitions.

Galerie highlights ten institutions around the world that are not only great places to view art but to digest it too.
