A Museum Cafe That Is as Much a Destination as the Art | Frenchette in Eater NY

January 09, 2024

“In early December, Frenchette Bakery skidded into the restaurant space at the Whitney Museum of American Art in the West Village, a towering glass box that looks like its floors are slightly askew. Owned by chefs Riad Nasr and Lee Hanson, Frenchette Bakery at the Whitney (99 Gansevoort Street at Washington Street) is a spinoff of the pair’s Frenchette Bakery in Tribeca, which is itself an extension of the restaurant Frenchette in the same neighborhood.”

“Don’t miss the pastries at Frenchette Bakery at the Whitney. And don’t neglect the soups, pastas, and pizzas, either, from a limited menu that seems specifically aimed at hungry museum goers, and not intended to make the place a destination restaurant: And yet, the quality of both the bakery and cafe could make it so.”
