Pay What You Wish at The Whitney, Then Enjoy A Tasting Menu at Coarse
Start your weekend at the Whitney Museum, where eight floors of contemporary art are served up alongside spectacular views of the city. The leading museum for 20th-century and contemporary art in the United States, the Whitney takes a particular focus on showcasing living artists. On Fridays, the museum forgoes its $22 entrance price from 7-10 p.m., and visitors can pay what they wish.
After you’ve sampled the modern delights of the Whitney, head to Coarse NY for artful creations of the gastronomic kind. Let Chef Vincent Chirico—previously of Daniel and Jean Georges fame—take the reigns with the chef’s spontaneous tasting menu. Featuring 7 courses and wine pairings, Coarse’s tasting menu makes the luxe, personalized dining experience accessible at $79. The small, cozy space means it’s easy for Chirico to visit each table and put together a tasting menu customized to his patrons’ preferences.
