Editorial Review of Puck's at the MCA

Art doesn't solely appear on the walls in the Museum of Contemporary Art. Set up in a space reminiscent of a blank canvas—white walls, a high ceiling and small silver tables—the museum's full-service restaurant and express counter features the plated, palatable works of celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.

While anyone is welcome to dine at Puck's, the restaurant is a perfect reprieve for museum-visitors who need to refuel. Exclusively serving lunch, Puck's offers a seasonal menu of Mediterranean and Asian-influenced fare. When the weather's nice and you have time to spare, have your turkey club, chef salad or sirloin burger out on the patio overlooking the sculpture garden. Fortunately, if the weather isn't cooperating, seating indoors is just as pleasant. Dine on butternut squash soup with cranberries or roasted halibut as you gaze out the large picture windows in the dining room that frame a similar patio view.

The express counter makes lunch on the run convenient and easy. Stop by to pick up a grilled shrimp Cesar salad or a three cheese panini. The counter also has additional items like brownies, chips and soft drinks. Prices for entrees range from $6-$16 at the restaurant and $4-$9 at the counter.

Average cost: $10-$20
