Flora Bar is the third restaurant from chef & owner Ignacio Mattos, located in Marcel Breuer’s iconic building occupied by the Met Museum.

From the chef/owner of the critically-acclaimed restaurant Estela in Nolita and Café Altro Paradiso in SoHo, comes Flora Bar and Flora Coffee. Opening at The Met Breuer in Fall 2016, Flora Bar takes inspiration from lively, approachable restaurants in New York and Europe and is open beyond museum hours. The menu emphasizes seafood and vegetables and strives to be tasty and playful. You can stop in for a full dinner, a small bite or a drink at the long bar.

The Flora Bar team aim to create an atmosphere of accessibility and fun similar to what they’ve cultivated downtown. The partnership with the museum came about from The Met’s desire to bring the Estela team’s light and ethereal tone—and perhaps foremost its sensitivity to the setting and location of a space—to the iconic Breuer building.
