Dining at the Whitney

Press log in Register

As part of the Whitney’s reimagined food and beverage program—which aims to create welcoming, approachable spaces for people to gather, connect, and recharge—Frenchette Bakery, which opened in TriBeCa in 2020, opened a new flagship location, with its first-ever cafe in the Museum’s redesigned ground-floor restaurant space in November 2023.

The new Frenchette Bakery at the Whitney offers a grab-and-go bakery with a selection of on-premises baked sweet and savory fare, as well as a sit-down, full-service cafe with pizzas, soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, desserts, and a carefully selected wine, beer, and cocktail menu.

In addition to the ground-floor restaurant, the Whitney worked with the team behind Frenchette on a new concept for the Museum’s eighth-floor cafe space, Studio Bar. The revamped cafe offers visitors a quiet space to take a break, recharge, and enjoy a selection of sweet and savory snacks and beverages, including coffee, wine, and beer.

To connect the restaurant spaces with the Museum’s mission to celebrate and support contemporary art and artists, both spaces are anchored by significant, newly commissioned artworks. The ground floor features an installation by artist Rashid Johnson, and the eighth-floor space showcases a monumental artwork in mosaic tile by artist Dyani White Hawk.
