David Bowie Inspired Dining at The Norm
by Beth Kaiserman

David Bowie is taking his final bow at Brooklyn Museum.

To complement the Brooklyn Museum's "David Bowie Is" exhibition opening March 2, The Norm at Brooklyn Museum is launching its new Spring menu with dishes and drinks devoted to the beloved icon. The Norm will also celebrate the life and career of the barrier busting Bowie with a dinner series starting April 22.

Ticket info is here.

Throughout the exhibition, The Norm will display a compelling collection of rare photographs, David Bowie Archive, by famed Japanese photographer Masayoshi Sukita, whose 40-year collaboration with Bowie produced the most iconic images taken of him. 

The four dinners paired with the exhibit will highlight the important phases of Bowie’s work, which took place in, or were greatly influenced by London, Berlin, Tokyo, and Philadelphia. 

Each four-course meal will reflect the foodways of one of the cities, along with inspiration from that specific phase of Bowie's career.

Chef Saul Bolton will be on hand to discuss the process of creating these eclectic menus, and Matthew Yokobosky, the Brooklyn Museum's director of exhibition design, will address how “David Bowie Is” came about and how he conceived and executed the format of the exhibition. 

Join us for these dynamic culinary experiences celebrating Bowie’s unforgettable impact on contemporary culture for nearly 50 years. Preview the menus below!
