Want a taste of high art? Feast your eyes on Run Restaurant Untitled—an interactive experience that blends fine fare, music, and poetry in a stylish communal space designed by Susan Cianciolo for the 2017 Whitney Biennial.

Set in the museum’s eatery, Untitled, the delectable affair will showcase a special menu created in collaboration with the restaurant’s James Beard Award–winning executive chef Michael Anthony. Expect bright and refreshing dishes like citrus-cured fluke, roasted and confit duck, and grilled arctic char—plus crème caramel, chocolate pie, and olive oil madeleines for dessert.

The multimedia event is an elevated take on Cianciolo’s first Run, which The New York Times heralded as the Brooklyn-based artist’s “most interactive project” when it debuted at Alleged Gallery—across the street from the Whitney’s new home—in 2001. Spotlighting a series of Cianciolo’s drawings and collages interspersed with decorative linens and tapestries, this year’s Run promises to be even grander, with live performances by poet Morgan Ritter, guitarist Captain Kirk Douglas, and cool electronic duo 9 Bridges.

Why You Should Go: It’s a rare opportunity to take in a work of art using multiple senses—and the next Run might not take place for another 16 years!
