Dining at the MFAH

New Dining Options: Pop-up Café + MFACafé


Paolo Fronza and Matteo Alessandri, formerly of Fellini Caffè, team up once again for an exciting new dining option: MFACafé. Their sophisticated café will offer Northern Italian-inspired fare when it opens this fall in the Museum's Audrey Jones Beck Building.

In the meantime, freshly prepared sandwiches and salads are available at the temporary pop-up café in the lobby of the Beck Building, beginning Tuesday, August 4.

Lunch + Look


Make the Museum your lunchtime retreat! Between the varied cuisine offered by daily food trucks and the delicious bites at the on-site café, the MFAH is the perfect lunch destination.

On weekdays, bring your lunch receipt from the food truck or the café to any admissions desk between noon and 2 p.m. and you'll receive free same-day general admission.* Enter the Museum during those hours, and stay as long as you wish, until closing time. *Free admission does not apply to ticketed events or special exhibitions.


Fine Art + Food Trucks

Enjoy gourmet food on the go! Visit a curated selection of Houston’s finest food trucks, parked next to Cullen Sculpture Garden each day at lunchtime.
