Met Museum Adds Estela to its New Outpost

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new modern outpost, Met Breuer, will be opening in March of 2016 at Madison and 75th, and it’s sure to be a popular destination for art lovers all over the city. Food lovers may now have a reason to head there as well, as the Met recently announced that the outpost will include a second branch of Estela, the oft-packed bar/restaurant on East Houston run by chef Ignacio Mattos and restaurateur Thomas Carter.

Thomas P. Campbell, the director and chief executive of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, cited the restaurant’s “downtown energy,” and it’s ability to meet the needs of both formal and informal diners. Carter said that the Met’s leaders wanted something “convivial and rustic and fun.”

The new restaurant will likely not be open till Summer of 2016, and the menu is still up in the air. One thing to expect is an impressive wine list: Carter has said that the selection at the new uptown branch will “dwarf” the Houston street location, with 500 bottles to the original Estela’s 200. It never hurts to have a good glass to go with your contemporary art.
