Seasonal Prix-Fixe Menu

Members Dining Room, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

As we welcome 2015, visitors have been delighted by the first exhibition devoted entirely to the seventeenth-century painter of fantastic mythological scenes, Bartholomeus Spranger: Splendor and Eroticism in Imperial Prague. Spranger's artistic career took him through several European countries, all of which deeply influenced his art. The rich culinary heritage of these countries—Belgium, Italy, Austria, and the Czech Republic—serve as the foundation for this month's menu.
