Starving, artists?

The complete guide to dining around the broad

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Why did Andy Warhol find inspiration in, of all things, a can of Campbell’s Soup? Kitsch appeal? Nostalgia? Or could it have been hunger? 

You’re probably going to get an appetite either before or after your trip to the Broad — cutting-edge art can take a lot out of a person. But don’t worry: there are dozens of spots to nosh within walking distance of the Broad’s front door. Or hop in a cab and you’re just a quick ride to any number of authentic Mexican, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Italian and classic American restaurants. The museum is nestled in the heart of a bustling food district, with destination dining in downtown Lansing and Frandor shopping center to the west, downtown East Lansing and Eastwood Towne Center to the north and Williamston and Okemos to the east.  

Here, City Pulse has compiled the ultimate dining guide to visitors of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum:
