NYC - The Official Guide

Café Serai


Chelsea’s Rubin Museum brings together 1,500 years of Himalayan art, with scroll paintings, sculptures, masks and textiles from the Tibetan plateau and surrounding regions. To really immerse yourself in the culture, stop in the spacious, lobby level Café Serai for pan-fried or steamed momos (South Asian dumplings), creamy chicken tikka masala or black pepper lamb curry. During the day, the lounge is a peaceful place for tea and pastries. On Friday nights, when the museum offers free admission from 6 to 10pm, it morphs into K2—a dark, clubby spot with a DJ.
