The Wright Restaurant Review

: When you have a building as extraordinary as the Guggenheim Museum, any in-house restaurant hoping to succeed must match up with design. The Wright, down a ramp to the right side of the iconic Fifth Avenue structure, does just that. With swirls of white that mimic the architecture of the building and a colorful installation by artist Sarah Crowner, the curvilinear restaurant offers dining in a museum setting. At lunch, you’ll find modern American bistro fare like a chopped salad with kale, apple, kohlrabi, pistachio, beets, pomegranate, cucumber, pepper, carrot and sherry apple dressing; house-made ravioli; pot pie; and a burger. Weekend brunch brings stuffed french toast and poached eggs and hash.
