Great news for those of us in Houston who love going to the MFAH but hate the dining options: the museum plans to open their new MFACafé this fall in the Audrey Jones Beck Building. According to their press release, the café will feature “the homemade fare of Italian-born co-creators Paolo Fronza and Matteo Alessandri” and “will combine the concepts of a museum café and the coffee bars of Italy, offering guests an array of light, Northern Italian-inspired food.”
In layman’s terms, the menu includes salads, pastas, soups, panini, and also offers breakfast options. The café is to be decorated with works from the MFAH’s collection that “reflect Italian art and culture.” Additionally, there will be communal tables available and the café will offer Wi-Fi and power outlets to guests.
Get your last dose of Café Express before it closes tomorrow, August 1st.
Via MFAH: “Beginning on Tuesday, August 4, the Museum will set up a temporary pop-up café in the lobby of the Beck Building, after Cafe Express hosts its last day of service on Saturday, August 1. Service, which continues until the opening of MFACafe, will be available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
