Our winners are dedicated to the proposition that no art-lover deserves to starve. They’re all serving benefactor-worthy fare (sandwich breads include focaccia, ciabatta, brioche), and two of the three maintain a full bar. It’s set up to look like nibbling — paté, charcuterie and cheese boards, house-made potato chips — but you can easily find enough to keep you going for a hard day of high culture. Trinosophes and Café 78 even serve breakfast. All the food spaces are big, but in the latter two it’s big as in barn-like whereas at the DIA, the gorgeous Kresge Court is part of the art experience.
