Palate Opens at Art Museum

May 12, 2017


It still has the same great views of the National Elk Refuge, but the restaurant at the National Museum of Wildlife Art has a new name, a new menu and a new look.

Palate is operated by Graeme and Christine Mara Swain, owners of Gather Restaurant in Jackson.

The decor is sleek, with small tables, blue banquettes, track lighting and brick walls.

The menu includes starters, sandwiches and salads. Redbird drummers, sweet potato fries and roasted green beans are among the appetizers. Sandwich options include a bison gyro, pork belly BLT and smoked chicken pappardelle.

There are kids items and desserts, too.

Palate is open daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
