Chow celebrates the birth and evolution of Chinese American restaurants, tracing their nearly 170-year history and sparking conversation around immigration, cultural identity, and what it means to be American. Discover how Chinese Americans persevered despite racism and exclusionary laws, and created one of America's most beloved cuisines. 

Chow features chef-designed tastings and a stunning collection of historical menus. 


On show July 20 through august 5

Knights of the Raj NYC is an immersive arts experience that beautifully captures the struggles and the stories behind the people who make up the largest Bangladeshi community in the United States, the people who brought curry to New York City restaurants. This timely window into a hidden world invites visitors to experience South Asian flavors while absorbing the deeply personal narratives that led Bengali migrants to New York. Step into another world as we explore how a group of often overlooked NYC restaurant pioneers journeyed from their homeland in Bangladesh to the UK's Brick Lane full of "curry houses" and New York's own Curry Hill to the Bangladeshi biryani carts and street food vendors seen today throughout Jackson Heights.

Limited capacity and limited engagement!
