The Bullock Texas State History Museum is looking for a new cafe vendor for its newly renovated space. The previous cafe sold the expected fare: burgers, sandwiches, variety of potato items, plus Texas-inspired dishes like chicken fried steak.

The space is currently being redesigned by Verokolt, which will include indoor and outdoor seating. The design firm has worked on restaurants such as ELM Group's Irene's and 24 Diner.

Whoever takes over the cafe will be able to deliver breakfast, lunch, and occasionally dinners when the museum is open in the evenings to patrons. The new cafe business wouldn't be able to take over catering duties, because another company takes care of that.

Proposals for the cafe are being accepted until Friday, September 23. The new vendor would begin next year.

The museum is currently closed for the installation of an Imax with Laser screen, reopening on Friday, October 7.

Similarly, the flagship Austin Central Library will include a restaurant with full bar, along with a demonstration kitchen, when it opens in November 2016.
