Passersby of the new Renzo Piano-designed Whitney Museum are getting their first glimpse through the glass walls of Untitled's new home.

It's hard to get a sense of the space from the picture on the restaurant's new Instagram account, but those look like permanent outdoor heating lamps to keep al fresco diners toasty.

Danny Meyer's team packed up its knives last fall when the museum closed its Upper East Side location to make way for its downtown digs. The museum will reopen May 1, and Untitled is slated to open at the same time. Gramercy Tavern's talented chef Michael Anthony will take over the kitchen, and according to the Union Square Hospitality website, he's still looking for a sous chef to help execute the new menu.
