Places 2 Check Out: Composition Cafe

Posted: Updated:

Among the works of world famous artists, is also a treasure in the culinary world. The Nevada Museum of Art is now home to Composition Cafe. BJ Mueller is the owner, chef. "We try to do a gourmet twist on everything but the key is to have quality product and then we go with our twist. It's more of a creative kind of thing so we're always thinking what can we do that's different. What can we do that pushes the limits."

The setting itself is unique. You dine right in the museum, up against floor to ceiling windows that look out on Hill Street. Then there's the interior of the restaurant which has bar seating and large farm tables where up to 10 can comfortable dine together.

But what's truly creative are the dishes on the menu. A burger is topped with pancetta. The tomato and watermelon salad comes with sprigs of basil and balsamic vinaigrette. And this is just for lunch. Dinner gets even more creative. "We have a tapas cuisine concept. So it's kin of like small plates and then we change it every week. So some weeks are themes, some are Japanese infusion, some are Italian. Some weeks we do modern French."

So you never know what you're going to get at composition cafe, except the fact, it's always going to be good food.
