More about The Norm at Brooklyn Museum

The Norm at Brooklyn Museum is a restaurant concept inspired by the cultural diversity of Brooklyn. Led by Michelin-starred Chef Saul Bolton, the menu encourages a gastronomic exploration of the borough’s multi-cultural heritage, incorporating Indian, Mexican, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Caribbean, Indo-Chinese and all-American elements.

Designed by Anda Andrei, Bonetti/Kozerski Architecture and Design DPC, the space is inspired by the museum's maze of secret and mysterious storage spaces. The restaurant affords guests the opportunity to experience the institution in a completely new way, with a sense of being admitted into the museum's inner sanctum. Patrons are surrounded by priceless paintings from the museum's collections and the crates that store them. The artworks reference different eras and cultures, and are hung in no particular order, as though awaiting their turn to be showcased in an exhibition.

More about The Brooklyn Nutcracker

A re-imagined holiday classic, The Brooklyn Nutcracker fuses ballet, hip-hop and a myriad of world dance genres to create a new tradition for today’s audience. The Brooklyn Nutcracker transforms familiar Nutcracker characters and scenes to represent the diverse traditions and vibrant culture of melting pot Brooklyn. Starting from the point of view of old Dutch Brooklyn and leading to the iconic Flatbush Avenue, the production is fresh and full of virtuosity—in essence, a moving Christmas card to the borough Brooklyn Ballet calls home. 

All Opening Night tickets include champagne toast at intermission. Dinner + Performance tickets include pre-performance dinner at The Norm, beginning at 6:00pm.
