CMA’s Provenance premieres two new prix fixe menus

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Provenance has announced two new prix fixe menus for museum patrons. Starting this week, the restaurant will feature dish selections inspired by local artists displayed in the museum’s Cleveland Galleries in the East Wing.

“Each prix fixe menu features dishes that are created to give guests a multisensory experience from both an artistic and culinary standpoint,” said Chef Douglas Katz.

Indeed, a selection from this Cleveland Gallery-themed prix fixe menu includes such artful dishes as the chef’s garden roasted cauliflower salad, which comes with shaved pickled red and yellow beets, kohlrabi, golden raisins, toasted pine nuts, red velvet creamery yogurt and mint and honey dressing. Other items include the pan-roasted New Creation Farm chicken thighs, local apple upside down cake with Cleveland whiskey caramel and Mitchell’s homemade vanilla ice cream.

An additional four-course prix fixe menu featuring several courses with complementary wine pairings will be available on Friday, Feb. 13 for Valentine’s Day. Highlights include the Maine lobster bisque, roasted hen with wild mushroom risotto and seared grouper with roasted fingerlings, leeks, wilted spinach and red pepper cream. As an added treat, the museum will be open until 9 p.m. so that guests may enjoy the galleries before and after their meal.
