As many of you may know, there is currently a wonderful exhibit on Takashi Murakami at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. It debuted in October and will run until April, located in the Gund Gallery at the MFA.
And the four dining venues at the MFA are currently taking culinary inspiration from the exhibit, serving things like Lychee Bellinis, Chicken Tsukune Steamed Buns, Ramen, and so much more.
This weekend I was so excited to check out some items on the special Murakami menus at the New American Café, and the Bravo Restaurant at the MFA.
My friend and I started at the New American Café, where we enjoyed Ginger Mango Green Tea Cocktails and some delicious takes on Japanese street food including Chilled Soba Noodle Salad, Beef Yakatori Skewers, Chicken Tsukune Steamed Buns, and Shishito peppers.
And for something sweet, a delicious strawberry matcha cake!
Afterwards, we headed up to Bravo Restaurant, which is one of my favorite places in the world to be. I absolutely love the ambiance of the restaurant — it always feels so calm in there with the soft live music and cozy grey booths overlooking the beautiful Jason Middle mural on the second floor of the MFA that I love.
Anyway, we started with some of their special cocktails — a lychee drink, a kiwi-sake drink, and a ginger lemon drink.
They paired perfectly with our starters — a plate of pickles, sake-steamed native littleneck clams, and a lovely tuna sashimi paired with taro chips.
Then, our wonderful ramen bowls, which were filled with buckwheat noodles, scallops, mussels, clams, cabbage, and an egg. It was the perfect dish to warm up with on a 10 degree day in Boston.
We finished our meal with a heavenly Cookies 'n' Cream Waffle Sundae with a Matcha Cookie.
