Marisol Restaurant and Bar

Marisol can be your neighborhood coffee spot or a new destination for lunch, brunch, dinner, and drinks. The contemporary restaurant carries the spirit of its namesake, the Venezuelan-American pop artist Marisol, whose gift of art began the MCA’s collection in 1968. Chefs Sarah Rinkavage and Jason Hammel pioneer a menu of seasonally inspired dishes that source local, fresh ingredients. Diners and museum visitors enjoy table service with a full bar and private dining space, or counter service with communal tables that form the Street, our new community space to plug in or meet friends.

Reservations may be made in advance online or by calling 312-799-3599.
