The New Marc Chagall Exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Inspires Special Dessert Creations At Granite Hill And The Perelman Cafe
In conjunction with its latest exhibition Paris Through The Window: Marc Chagall And His Circle on display at the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is offering special Chagall-inspired desserts at its restaurant and cafes.
Specifically, the menu at the Gallery Café at Perelman and the museum’s main building’s cafeteria includes a beautiful beehive cookie, a playful acknowledgment of the literal meaning of “La Ruche” (beehive), the artist’s residence area in Paris that Chagall and his compatriots populated.
In addition, the Stephen Starr-helmed Granite Hill is serving a gorgeous “Chagall’s Beehive” dessert: toasted meringue, raspberry marquise, puff pastry and lavender honey. Très délicieuse.
