    Can't complain about the food! Nice selection of international cuisine (and more "American" things). Great for a brunch or lunch in a nice space, thought it could very well be loud when busy.

    The "Dying Gaul" as well as the Art of Byzantium exhibits are great. Being able to compare Italian and French art alone is totally worth the visit. Plus there are cool ties for sale in their store.

    Check the listings to see what movie/music/lecture events are scheduled for the main auditorium downstairs. I just saw a classic Buster Keaton silent film, with live orchestral accompaniment.

    Did you know? Architect I.M. Pei’s 1978 addition to the gallery has an unusual layout – two isosceles triangles – in order to work with the gallery site’s irregular trapezoidal shape. Read more

    Tunnel in the basement is worth a trip, but other exhibits have been hit-or-miss. Notable exception a Roy Lichtenstein retrospective.

    A nice short museum crawl (comparatively) with so many great modern pieces. Make sure to check out the underground walkway.

    Small French Paintings is not to be missed, though it is tucked into a corner near the entrance and is easily overlooked.
