Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and Bon Appetit Management Co. Announce the New Cafe Modern

Dr. Marla Price, director of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and Bon Appétit Management Co. are proud to announce, in addition to the renovations to Café Modern, new weekend hours and dining options for the Museum and Café.

Beginning October 1, every Friday evening Café Modern will offer dinner seating until 8 pm and cocktail service at the new bar until 10 pm; the Museum galleries will remain open until 8 pm, as well. There will also be menu options for those planning on attending the Friday evening Magnolia at the Modern screening.

Among the other changes, brunch will now be offered on both Saturday and Sunday, and the Museum will open an hour earlier on Sundays, allowing guests to eat and visit the galleries before the new noon show time of the Magnolia at the Modern film.

Visitors can expect to find the same exceptional food they have come to expect from Executive Chef Dena Peterson, with a new globally inspired menu and a continued focus on the freshest seasonal and local ingredients. A cocktail menu, cleverly inspired by select works from the Museum’s permanent collection, will also accompany the new bar. And for those looking for a bite to eat in the afternoon, a small plates menu will be available from the bar with both hot and cold items prepared fresh.
