All in all - the food experience inside the museum wasn't bad, it was expensive for sure - but the cafeteria style restaurant has a wide selection of food and plenty of seating. Even though we got there 30 mins before closing, we didnt feel rushed and there was plenty of fresh food.
Cups of soup - the four of us had two each of pumkin and peanut soup. I should have tasted the pumkin soup, but my friends said it was good. I did have the peanut soup, and it was quite good. creamy, rich and spicy. It was $2.50 for a coffee cup full.
Broiled Salmon - We had a tasty piece of salmon filet for $8.95. It was large enough for two to split as a appetizer size portion, and quite good. Nicely moist with a thin slightly too sweet glaze, but it was sparringly applied so as not to over-power. For $2 more you can add on two sides.
Lobster Roll - $8.95 and decent enough to quench a hunger for shellfish. Nice large roll, with a decent size portion of what looked like a kicked-up commercial lobster salad.
Chips - non-descript multi-colored tortilla chips, on a plate for $5. This took the prize for most audaciously priced dish.
Two-color of Potatoes - This was a tasty, albeit weird side dish. There were two molded scoops of mashed potatos side by side. One white and one blue. They were nicely seasoned, and served cold. And at $2.95, may have been the bargain of the day.
Indian Pudding - not bad, tasty jumbo golden raisens in a sweetened thick pudding, almost like a bread pudding. $4.95
Next time (if there is a next time), I would want to try the buffalo burger and the juniper berry smoked salmon sandwich.
