The Oklahoma City Museum of Art and local restaurant group, A Good Egg Dining Group, today announce a new artistic and culinary partnership. A Good Egg Dining Group is now managing the operations of the Museum Cafe. A longtime staple for lunch, dinner, and brunch downtown, the Museum Cafe begins a new era under the management of a company with 19 years of expertise.
“Given A Good Egg Dining Group’s outstanding reputation and first-rate restaurants there was really no other choice for the Museum,” said E. Michael Whittington, OKCMOA President and CEO. “They have long been known for their customer service, exceptional food and drink and creative concepts. We are excited to advance the culinary arts as an equal partner to the visual arts at the Museum.”
Keith Paul, co-founder and chief executive officer of A Good Egg Dining Group, said, “We are honored to partner with the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. The Museum Cafe has been a leader in the downtown Oklahoma City dining scene for more than 15 years. We look forward to continuing the tradition of creating wonderful dining experiences filled with creativity and genuine hospitality.”
The Museum Cafe will undergo a refresh from April 8 to 18 and will be closed to patrons during this renovation. “This refresh will encompass all facets of the Museum Cafe,” said Heather Paul, A Good Egg Dining Group’s co-founder and chief creative officer. “We plan to make the interior of the restaurant more modern to complement the ever-evolving Museum. Additionally, we will offer a menu that includes many beloved American classics with influence from French brasseries.”
The restaurant will reopen with an updated look and a reinvented menu during the Museum’s previously scheduled Third Thursday event on April 18. “Third Thursday: Black and White,” will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. and include live music, cash bar, art activities and gallery experiences. Admission to Third Thursday is free for members and $12 for non-members.
Beginning April 19, the Museum Cafe’s hours will be Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
