The Italian-themed second-floor canteen at the reopened MoMA is as inviting a destination as the museum itself, and as smartly designed. The aesthetic may be Danish, with stylish Gubi chairs and Britt Bonnesen's Rocking glasses, but the menu's pure Italian, from antipasti to tramezzini. Of course, you have to buy a ticket to MoMA to eat here.
