A trip to the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden is always a pleasure—especially during the spring and summer months—and one way to prolong your stay is to enjoy a meal at the attached Pavilion Cafe. When the weather is nice, you can sit on the terrace and let the breeze ruffle your hair as you sip a refreshing glass of seltzer and enjoy a freshly prepared meal.
Choose one of the cafe's popular salads if you'd like to keep your meal light (quinoa and baby kale topped with shaved Brussels sprouts and dried cranberries is one popular option), or go for one of the many toasted sandwiches. Brie, apple, and honey make a nice combination in between two slices of cranberry walnut bread, while roasted turkey with caramelized onions and white cheddar go well on a whole grain roll. In addition to your meal, you'll be able enjoy the regular live jazz performances performed at the cafe, which make just about any meal feel special.
