M. Welles Dinette information
Just like being back at school (but with better grub), this cultish nosh spot sits inside school-turned-art gallery MoMA PS1.

Feast on the likes of frisée salad with duck hearts, smoked egg and fried bread, cleverly paired with a small, interesting selection of wines by the glass.
