Raj Singh, owner of Delicious and Live Oak Market, has been selected as the new operator of the Bullock Texas State History Museum’s yet-to-be-named redesigned cafe reopening in February. The revamped menu will feature Texas-inspired dishes with a twist (expect comfort foods) and boast numerous house-made items from sauces to gelato.
The 6,800-square-foot cafe space — located on the second floor of the museum—seats about 150 and includes both indoor and outdoor seating. The space was renovated by Verokolt, the design firm behind popular restaurants such as Irene's, Italic, and 24 Diner.
The Bullock Museum began looking for a business to assume operation of the cafe space last August. The previous cafe sold the standard cafe fare like burgers and sandwiches, plus Texas favorites like chicken fried steak.
This announcement comes on the heels of news that ELM Restaurant Group, the company behind Easy Tiger, 24 Diner, and Irene's, is opening a new cafe within the upcoming Austin Central Library.
