(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, The National Museum of Wildlife Art announced Palate as its new restaurant and event caterer. The current restaurant will close October 29, and will reopen as Palate in May 2017.

Starting November 1, Palate will redesign the restaurant, and serve as caterer throughout the seven-month closure for all special events at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Johnston Hall, Members’ Lounge, Wapiti Gallery, and also all of the outdoor spaces including the Terrace and the Amphitheater, during warmer months.

“I am pleased to announce our new restaurateurs, Graeme and Christine Mara Swain, owners of Gather Restaurant in Jackson,” says Steve Seamons, Museum Director. “Their great reputation, focus on culinary and service excellence, was of great interest to us as we explored a new vision for our restaurant. Their success at Gather convinced our team that they are the right choice to move us forward in the dining world of Jackson.”

“The Museum is such a great destination,” says Graeme Swain. “We are thrilled to have this opportunity to work with the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Our goal is to create an experience where the food, the view, and the art all come together to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience.”

The last day that the Rising Sage Café will be open is this Saturday, October 29. Palate will be making their debut as a caterer on November 10 at Mix'd Media. Judd Grossman Duo will be playing, artists Sandy Scott will be doing a interactive art project with sculpting and clay and Jackson Hole Still Works will be serving cocktails.
