We visit the MFA just about every time we visit Boston. There are regular exhibitions of new collections. If you enjoy art, you will like this place.

Although you might be tempted to return to the larger, main restaurant downstairs, this venue has comfortable seating and is next to the beautiful gift shop. Fast service and moderate prices for sandwiches and deserts. Quality was very good.
