Muse (Inside Wichita Art Museum) Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

When we were at the Wichita Art Museum for the Summer Opening Party, Brian and I had dinner at the Muse Café. It was a real treat because they’re normally only open for lunch. Now that Brian no longer works downtown, we wouldn’t ever have the occasion to have lunch there unless we were both off in which case we probably wouldn’t be downtown. LOL.

I’d eaten there before but it had been a few years. Brian said he’d never been there until that night. I’m pretty sure he has, though. Anyway, if you’re looking for a nice, quiet place to have lunch that serves good food, this is the place.


The restaurant also boasts a fantastic view of the Paula and Barry Downing Amphitheater and the Arkansas River beyond.


I was trying to get the art garden in the background of this selfie but I failed miserably.


The art garden is awesome. If you haven’t been, you should definitely go check it out. Confluence did a fabulous job. One of the ways you can enjoy the beautiful, new grounds is by participating in “Yoga on the Lawn” held on the second Saturday of every month from May through October. There’s lots of other events that take advantage of the art garden but I digress… Back to the Muse.


We had light fare that night so I only have a couple of food pics. I had the shrimp tapa which had excellent flavor. Brian had the cheese and fruit tray.


I still like the cheese board that we got at the Ivy in Hell’s Kitchen. That’s in New York in case you were wondering.


Anyway, we really enjoyed our dining experience. I wish the cafe was open for dinner also. It would be a great place for a nice, romantic dinner. After dinner you could take a stroll through the art garden and maybe get proposed to.

Oh, yeah. We are already married. If I weren’t though, and I were to propose to someone, that’s definitely how I would do it. You have to time it just right though, because the Muse Café is only open for dinner on special occasions such as the Summer Opening Party. It’ll be worth all of the planning. You could even have the wedding there. I think it would be really cool to be married where the proposal happened. Do over!
