From the chef/owner of the critically-acclaimed restaurant estela in Nolita and Altro Paradiso in SoHo, comes Flora and Flora Coffee. Flora 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 in the dining room, a small bite, or for a drink at the bar.
The Flora team aims to create an atmosphere of conviviality and adventure, 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 feel—and perhaps foremost its sensitivity to the setting and location of a space—to the iconic and impressive Breuer building.
