The National Museum of the American Indian’s Mitsitam Native Foods Café—translated as “Let’s Eat” in the language of the Delaware and Piscataway tribes—prepares traditional dishes from five Native American regions. Dine on snapping turtle soup with cherry compote at the Northern Woodlands station, buffalo chili on fry bread from the Great Plains, and chocolate tamarindo rice pudding at the Mesoamerica table. Diners with big appetites and adventurous palates should order the five-region sampler, which comes with grilled buffalo, cedar-planked salmon, and a choice of three sides.
