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.
Stop by our plaza on Tuesdays for fresh baked goods, crepes, grilled cheese, tamales, and more. The SOAR Farmer's Market runs through June–October, 7 am–2 pm.
Tuesdays on the Terrace
On Tuesdays in June–September, stay cool with the breeze off the lake and performances by local jazz musicians from 5:30–8 pm on the Anne and John Kern Terrace Garden.
Open seating is available on our terrace or bring a blanket to relax on the lawn. Food may be purchased from our outdoor grill along with cold beverages, wine, and seasonal cocktails from the bar in the sculpture garden.
