Art House Café makes changes, adds happy hour

By Adrienne Kuehl on September 3, 2013

Since opening in April of this year, Art House Café has been serving patrons in the Stadium District of Tacoma breakfast, lunch and dinner while adjusting things along the way. They've made changes to their menu and added a happy hour, with the most notable change being a new head chef.

As of June, Mark McClure has been serving as the restaurant's head chef after the departure of Dustin Joseph.

"Chef Mark's passion for creating with food is exceptional," says co-owner Lucia Armstrong. "He was behind many of the recipes from the original menu and has only improved the local sourcing and quality of our ingredients, the variety and flavors."

Since then, he has revamped Art House Café's menu for summer, adding local seafood dishes and larger plate options, as well as a breakfast pizza that's available all day. Their new fall menu will debut in October.

The restaurant's new happy hour runs Monday-Thursday 4-6 p.m. and 8-10 p.m., Friday-Saturday 4-6 p.m. and 9-11 p.m., and Sunday 3 p.m. to close. It features lower-priced food items such as lamb sliders for $8 and spicy prawns priced at $8. You can even order up one of their wonderful brick-oven pizzas with a beer or wine combo for $10. Well drinks and house wines are also offered at $4 and $5, respectively.

If you haven't been to Art House Café in a while, it's worth a revisit to check out their changes and enjoy the new happy hour.

ART HOUSE CAFÉ, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday, 111 N. Tacoma Ave., Tacoma, 253.212.2011
