PHOENIX – After serving snacks and meals to hungry Phoenix Art Museum visitors for more than a decade, the Palette Restaurant will close for good this weekend.
Palette’s last day of operations will be Sunday. The Phoenix Art Museum said it is working with an as-yet-unnamed community partner to open a new dining concept this fall.
Palette, which offers a menu that showcases locally sourced ingredients, is open Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Thursday-Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The museum and restaurant, which takes reservations, are closed Monday-Tuesday.
The restaurant’s final day coincides with the museum’s next free Family Funday. The event features artmaking, live performances, artist demonstrations and hands-on experiences for all ages.
Entry includes access to the special engagement exhibitions “Juan Francisco Elso: Por América” and “Move: The Modern Cut of Geoffrey Beene.”
The Phoenix Art Museum is located on the northwest corner of McDowell Road and Central Avenue in a campus shared with the Phoenix Theatre Company.
