This is not your standard Museum Cafeteria. There are two options (a white tablecloth and a more informal one). We ate at the informal for US$25 per person, and it was fantastic for the price. Service is attentive and polite. The food was classy with a lot of attention to detail. The surroundings are of course fantastic. Dont think it twice if you are nearby and want an excellent lunch for almost nothing - a great value.

We very visiting the Morgan Library and took a break here to have a bite to eat. Since we were planning on a big meal later that evening, we decided to have the English Tea. The first pot of water was tepid, but oddly enough the second pot she brought was steaming. Go figure. The finger sandwiches were light (egg, tuna, salmon) and the deviled egg was creamy. We enjoyed the pastries, although, I've had more elegantly prepared teas in England. It was good to get a scone and clotted cream fix in any event!

This is an oft overlooked treasure. Mr. Morgan's three story library is worth the trip. No museum admission fee to eat here. The inning room looks like a stately one. The cafe may have more and better food notices and has large windows. A good place to et if you are in the museum. Otherwise, better choices.

We had lunch at the Dining Room, to take a bit of a rest and refuel before continuing the visit of the stunning collections. It was pricey, but delicious: risotto, a surprising black bean soup (among the best soups I've ever had), a nice portion of gravlax - which would have benefitted from not having mayonnaise on top. Elegant surroundings, very good service and, for entertainment, a peek at the big table with the greying ladies, very Upper East Side, deep in conversation. Their grandmothers probably had dinner with J P Morgan.

Very nice lunch here in a quiet indoor courtyard. Portions are ample and wine is available. An altogether pleasant interlude to the museum viewing.
