The Norm is a restaurant inspired by the cultural diversity of Brooklyn.

Developed by Michelin-starred Chef Saul Bolton, The Norm’s 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. Chef Saul's dishes are inspired by seasonal ingredients from Katchkie Farm in Kinderhook, NY. Our menus changes seasonally - see the Fall/Winter 2018 Menu below.

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. Dining at The Norm affords guests the opportunity to experience the cultural institution in an entirely new way. Allows a sense of being admitted into Brooklyn Museum's inner sanctum. Guests are surrounded by the museum's priceless artwork and crates that store them, and settle into furniture by the extraordinary Nordic designer, Muuto. A rotating Collection of Artwork hangs along the wall, to include unique pieces from the museum's archives or extensions of visiting exhibitions. Each element of the space melding to seamlessly complement and complete your experience at esteemed art institution.
