On Friday evening, Matthew and I were treated to an exclusive peek at the tantalizing goodness happening at Provenance at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Chef Partner Douglas Katz and Executive Chef Matthew Jankowski have created a menu that is truly an intersection of art and food.


We started our evening as all evenings should: with delicious cocktails! I recommend the thyme and ginger, a refreshing vodka beverage.


Pictured above with the thyme and ginger is a mushroom and leek cake, which was one of my favorites nibbles of the night. We also got to taste melt-in-your-mouth scallops and shaved duck on top roasted fingerling potato.


There was also an impressive array of cheeses and cured meats.


From the nibbles we had, I cannot wait to try a full meal at Provenance! The restaurant is open the same hours as the Museum: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday: 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.; Wednesday and Friday, 10:00 a.m.–9:00 p.m. Aside from the 76-person dining area, there are also two private rooms for parties.


This is truly a beautiful and tasty addition to the Cleveland Museum of Art! The group of us there for the tasting are truly thankful to Provenance for making us feel so welcome!


After the tasting, we got to check out the MixUp event, which is a monthly fusion of art, music, cocktails happening the first Friday of every month. You can peruse the galleries, as well as have a cocktail and listen to music in the impressive new atrium area.


Check out next month’s MixUp on Friday, June 7 or Solstice, one of the hottest parties of the summer, happening Saturday, June 22.

Having had the opportunity to spend time at the Cleveland Museum of Art twice recently, I will tell you that the Museum is a must-see, must-eat, must-spend-time destination. And to help you do just that, I have a $100 gift card to Provenance to give away!

    Mmmmm…love this giveaway! We love the restaurant and the cafe. We missed this month’s Mix but def. plan on hitting up Solstice.
    The grand marnier french toast at Sunday Brunch at Provenance should qualify for art. Stacked so high and gorgeous!
    Summer Genetti’s desserts at Lola are also the best. Gorgeous presentation and oh so delicious! (I’m not sure what it is with me and the sweets this morning. haha)

    You know what? Touch Supper Club is one of my favorite restaurants because not only are the food a drink so well done, but the artwork and music are always interesting and changing.

    I love the decor and setting at Crop, it almost feels a little bit like a modernized castle, with the brick walls and high ceilings and huge paintings!

    Wild Mango in North Olmstead is both beautiful inside and the food is not oly delicious but gorgeous to look at.
