Fittingly, the food in this museum restaurant is often as visually sumptuous as the art on the walls, though many patrons prefer the intimate dining room for lunch rather than dinner — which is served only on Friday and Saturday nights, when the menu is more limited and the food can be inconsistent. But when the artistic sensibilities of chef Jennifer Maloney — whose larger-than-life personality is as integral to the restaurants identity as the Frederick James Brown paintings and the sculptural Stefan Lindfor chairs — are in full flower, her suppers are as emotionally satisfying as any work of art. The desserts are masterful forgeries of the best works by other local pastry chefs, but thats part of this restaurants unique and palpable charm. — Charles Ferruzza
