Eating inside the Walker Art Center has been an evolution over the past few years and the changes keep on coming. First it was the giant robot/monster head expansion that housed Wolfgang Puck's short-lived 20.21. Then, it was Gather by D'Amico, the lunch mostly/sometimes happy hour spot. Now, news has broke that D'Amico will part ways entirely with the museum.

While the lower level entrance is undergoing a transformation, a new eatery will also be added to the first floor. Culinaire International will takeover all food operations inside the museum and run the newly constructed sit-down restaurant. The erstwhile Gather will be used for special events for the time being and will eventually be re-opened as a casual eatery some time in March.

Culinare International is a Dallas-based food company who also has local experience with Sea Change inside the Guthrie Theater and Fika inside the American Swedish Institute.
