MoMA PS1 & M.Wells Dinette

Located in Long Island City, Queens, MoMA PS1 is the home of highly experimental modern art. Dating back to 1892, the building served as the first school in Long Island City until 1963. The aesthetics of a school is kept- from the stairwells and hallway decor to its in-house-restaurant, which looks like a classroom.

M.Wells Dinette is a cafeteria-style restaurant in the museum with an ever-changing menu (museum admission isn’t required to dine). Its dishes are innovative. I had a Spaghetti sandwich: the patty was made entirely out of spaghetti. Yes, ya heard.

Wael Shawky’s Cabaret Crusades was the big current exhibition. It features all the marionettes, glass-figures, and handmade sets he used to create reenactments of the history of The Crusades.
