At the Wolfsonian design museum's unique café, which doubles as a museum shop, you can buy a one-of-a-kind $300 Asian shawl or a $19.95 set of political paper dolls; browse the modular shelves surrounding the dining area, which are filled with titles banned at some point in modern history (for religious, political, or philosophical reasons); and eat internationally inspired small plates, salads, sandwiches, and sweets that are equally simple yet stimulating - and satisfying. Especially good: the subtly spiced East Indian curry chicken salad. Sandwiches are standard combinations rather than wildly creative, but both raw ingredients and preparation are topnotch.
