M. Wells Dinette at PS1

M. Wells was one of the hottest restaurants in New York City, until it closed its doors in 2011. Husband-and-wife team Hugue Dufour and Sarah Obraitis took their concept to MoMA's PS1 in fall 2012. Housed inside the century-old schoolhouse turned contemporary art mecca, M. Wells Dinette works the academic theme with its cafeteria setting: The constantly-changing menu is written on a chalkboard and long desks are used for communal eating. Taking a cue from the experimental artwork, the left-of-center lunch options include rabbit and foie gras terrine, beef tartare, as well as beef Wellington, and shrimp spaetzle.
