The newly renovated and reopened Café NOMA by Ralph Brennan features a delicious array of artisanal flatbreads, sandwiches, salads and veggie bowls alongside an artful assortment of freshly baked breads and sweets inside a show-stopping pastry case. Blurring the lines between refreshment retreat and gallery space, this stellar venue features a dramatic installation of vessels for food and drink from the museum's permanent collection, designed in collaboration with the curatorial team. Spanning the entire wall behind a 24' long upholstered banquette, the seventy-two-object display covers the vast range of the museum's extraordinary collection of world art.
Cafe admission is free everyday via the front desk at NOMA – just request a sticker. Street Parking is available around the New Orleans Museum of Art
