Returned to The Wright after a year's absence...oh, is it still good! Mouthwatering pasta and tomato soup; chocolate cake with perfect raspberries and delicious mocha ice cream side garnishes. Ahhhhhhhhhhh. Portions not too small, not too large.

Lovely space in basement of Guggenheim. You do not have to buy a ticket for the museum! Lovely food, and not especially expensive for where we are!
