- The Restaurant Writes...
The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is pleased to present Amuse, the brand new dining room and bar nestled on the third level overlooking the spectacular Cochrane Atrium. Our dining room is perfect for a leisurely lunch upon visiting the VMFA, with several local dishes conceived and produced daily by Chef Greg Haley. From the greens in our salads to the vodka in our specialty martinis, Amuse is proud to use the finest ingredients grown and perfected here in Virginia. Our bar is an ideal spot for a fine glass of wine or cocktail, fitted with comfortable retro lounge chairs and marble tables. Weather permitting, our balcony will be open for dining, providing a spectacular view of the campus and our new sculpture garden. Group dining is available in our main dining room or in one of our two adjacent banquet rooms, complete with floor to ceiling glass walls and access to our spacious balcony. Visit Amuse and see for yourself!
