ARTIFACT at Mingei | Mingei International Museum

ARTIFACT will be a full-service restaurant featuring craft cooking inspired by ancient methods, spices and botanicals. A quarterly pre-fixe menu crafted by Tim Kolanko, Executive Chef, Urban Kitchen Group, and Jeff Armstrong, ARTIFACT’s Chef de Cuisine, will be a nod to Mingei’s changing international exhibitions in an environment filled with functional, innovative art and design. Aligning with CUCINA’s commitment to convivial, communal dining, the visual and social focus of the restaurant will be a 30-foot reclaimed wood bar counter crafted especially for ARTIFACT by local company Tule Peak Timber. ARTIFACT will open in mid-October 2021 for lunch and dinner service, with internationally inflected menu items ranging from Wagyu steak with lapsang souchong, shiso oil and maitake to Apicius chicken with garam, honey, dill and root vegetables.

Please Note

Masks are required for all guests (ages 2+) inside the Museum, regardless of vaccination status.
