The second exhibit in our Museum of WTF Restaurant Art is on loan from El Cantinero, the Mexican restaurant known (to NYU-ers, anyway) for its Monday-night all-you-can-eat special and for being confused with Il Cantinori in an episode of Sex and the City. We prefer the upstairs, where there’s an outdoor deck and (in the bar) a ridiculous happy hour with free food, but downstairs has its own perks — these paintings! We leave it to you to interpret them, or to come up with the titles of the romance novels they’d be fit to grace the cover of.
