The relocated Dahesh Museum of Art finally has room for the obligatory museum café, which Hugh Hardy has designed to be a sleek, second-story restaurant and tearoom. In keeping with the Middle Eastern theme (the museum’s namesake and founder was Lebanese), the menu features a broad selection of meze, cardamom-scented chicken-noodle soup, and entrées like seared lamb salad with harissa vinaigrette.
