We've just learned that the Art of Eating, the popular East End catering company, has been selected to run the café at the new Parrish Art Museum when it opens later this year.
The 730-sq-ft café space in the new Herzog & de Meuron-designed museum will be adjacent to the 1,000-sq-ft "entry terrace," so we imagine there'll be plenty of tables outside to take in the pastoral views. (Click the floor plan to the right for a larger version.)
Although the company is perhaps best known for making the hors d'oeuvres for many of the big summer charity events, no word yet what their Parrish menu will include or if cutlery will be available.
UPDATE: The Parrish has offered some additional detail about what will be on offer: "Art of Eating will be handling the café, which will feature an array of salads, sandwiches, and other light fare, along with a full bar—focusing, like everything at the Parrish—on the creative legacy of the East End, which in this case means a dedication to local produce and wines." Yum!
