Museum dining

This is interesting — the team behind Equinox, including Todd Gray and Ellen Kassoff Gray, plan to open an Israeli street food restaurant within the eventual Museum of the Bible, slated to open in D.C. in fall of 2017. The cafe will be called Manna; an accompanying coffee shop will be named Milk & Honey. The museum project in general is expected to attract some controversy given it is funded by the owner of Hobby Lobby, a company known for making headlines due to its positions on church and state issues.
