Not every museum-cafeteria operator derives as much satisfaction in finding a kitchen sink from Cabrini hospital’s psych ward as from having the sous-vide setup pass the Health Department inspection. But M. Wells Dinette is no ordinary museum café. Rather, it’s the reincarnation of M. Wells, the short-lived Hunters Point diner that garnered a cult following before losing a rent battle with the landlord. The space references classroom and diner imagery.


Museum admission not required for entry.
