Morgan Dining Room and Cafe

Much like the Morgan Library in which it resides, the Morgan Dining Room is a compact, but refreshing affair in a relative dining and cultural desert. It gives off an air of refinement, housed in the former family dining room of the J. P. Morgan mansion. The tight space means the Morgan Cafe in the bright atrium is a better bet with kids. Note it is lunch only.

What to eat: Both menus claim inspiration from early 20th century cuisine. And both are short, focused on nice salads and a few mains in the dining Room and a burger in the Cafe. The afternoon tea with an assortment of sandwiches and sweets is always a fun family option.

Pipsqueak tip: The stroller policy, like many of the manuscripts, is medieval: you cannot check it and you cannot fold and carry it, but you can role your stroller.
