Located in the Brooklyn Museum, The Norm is a purveyor of casual dining from the esteemed Chef Saul Bolton.


The Norm at Brooklyn Museum is a restaurant concept inspired by the cultural diversity of Brooklyn. Led by Michelin-starred Chef Saul Bolton, the 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.

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. The restaurant affords guests the opportunity to experience the institution in a completely new way, with a sense of being admitted into the museum's inner sanctum. Patrons are surrounded by priceless paintings from the museum's collections and the crates that store them. The artworks reference different eras and cultures, and are hung in no particular order, as though awaiting their turn to be showcased in an exhibition.

Visit the restaurant for small bites and drinks or a full sit-down meal.

Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 11AM-3PM.

Happy Hour is Thursday and Friday from 5pm until close.

The restaurant validates $2 off museum parking.
