Untitled is on the ground floor of the Whitney Museum's new downtown home, designed by architect Renzo Piano. In 2015 it was recognized with a James Beard Award for Best Restaurant Design. The restaurant sits below the building's dramatically cantilevered entrance along Gansevoort Street, at the base of the High Line. The space balances an expansive, glass façade with a poured cement floor and wood furnishings, echoing the industrial character of the neighborhood and the contemporary form of the Museum. Robert Indiana's The Electric Eat is displayed on the kitchen-side wall.
