The Brooklyn Botanic Garden inspires people of all ages through conservation, display and enjoyment of plants. The Garden serves communities in New York City and internationally through its world-class gardens, extensive research collections and numerous educational and community programs.
Your ticket includes a 3-course dining experience at Yellow Magnolia Café. Named after the remarkable flower developed by Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the cafe offers modern, vegetable-focused cuisine in a one-of-a-kind setting nestled within the Garden’s iconic landscape. Designed by David Rockwell, the café is bright and airy and overlooks the Garden’s Lily Pool Terrace. The new café is a celebration of its urban garden setting, with seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms and purveyors—an ethos in keeping with the Garden’s longstanding interest in sustainable practices—and menus inspired by Brooklyn’s artisanal food movement.
Local chef Rob Newton, whose other Brooklyn restaurants have been lauded for their fresh and creative menus, alongside chef de cuisine Morgan Jarrett, have developed the café’s seasonal, market-driven menus, with a focus on local vegetables, grains, and sustainably sourced meats and fish. The menu is vegetable focused, with select meat and fish options available, as well as healthy children’s menu items.
