Dine with art
21c Museum Hotels was founded by Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, contemporary art collectors and preservationists, committed to bringing works of art to the public through innovative exhibitions and programs that integrate contemporary art into daily life. In addition to the art of today, hospitality and sustainably raised heritage and local foods are among the couple’s greatest passions.
21c operates six hotels and a diverse roster of restaurants. Each property’s chef driven restaurant has a unique point of view, and is as much a part of the community as it is the hotel. The food and beverage program at 21c is led by Sarah Robbins, Chief Hospitality Officer, who ensures the seamless relationship between each hotel and its restaurant. Sarah joined 21c as a founding partner after launching several new concepts for Myriad Restaurant Group as Project Director and Lead Trainer; she also managed New York’s Tribeca Grill. Sarah and the 21c Museum Hotels team oversee the development process from design and construction to branding, chef selection and menu development. Once open, the 21c team continues to collaborate with each restaurant.
