Chef Mina Stone to open restaurant at MoMA PS1 in April

A Mediterranean restaurant is set to replace M. Wells Dinette inside MoMA PS1.

Chef Mina Stone and artist Alex Eagleton will open a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant in April, according to a press release from MoMA PS1.

“Drawing on Mina Stone’s Greek heritage and fifteen years of cooking professionally in the art world, Mina’s will offer simple but creative Mediterranean-inspired cuisine designed to serve museum visitors, artists, and the vibrant community in Long Island City,” according to the release.

The menu will change frequently to feature seasonally available ingredients.

The restaurant will replace the outgoing M. Wells Dinette, which was headed by chef Hugue Dufour and his wife Sarah Obraitis. They opened the eatery in 2012 before announcing earlier in the month they were leaving MoMA PS1.1

That created the opening for Stone, who is best known for her 2015 book Cooking for Artists, designed by artist Urs Fischer and featuring more than 70 of Stone’s family-style recipes.

The story was first reported by the New York Times.2
