When the Whitney Museum of American Art reopens in the Meatpacking District this Friday, it’ll already have a strong candidate for a new American classic.
On the ground floor will be the reimagined Untitled — what used to be a cafe at the museum’s Upper East Side location has been turned into a fine dining spot with 10-year Gramercy Tavern head chef Michael Anthony in the kitchen.
The food, like the art, will be contemporary, but there’s an approachable vibe to the first dishes, which include crab hush puppies and a spring green lasagna, part of an entire vegetable-focused category on the menu.
Enjoy lunch and dinner inside the glass-walled restaurant or on the High Line-adjacent terrace. Or, if you’re looking for a better vantage point with a more casual air, the Untitled team is also running Studio Cafe on the eighth floor, serving toasts, soups and salads alongside a full bar.
