If you are looking for something fun, educational as well as food worthy Tapas Tuesday  at Cummer Museum  Riverside is the place. ,   On Tuesday nights, museum entry is free for all, and the cafe serves up some fun interesting treats, to make it even better.  Add to that live music, beautiful outside seating,  it’s a recipe for success.

Situated on the St. Johns river the beautiful gardens, offer a  peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city with fabulous views of Jacksonville.  The exhibits, are interesting and  many  old world masters are well represented as well as contemporary artist, art styles and mediums.  Docents are available to answer questions about any of the works of art, for who are interested  in  additional information about an artist or a particular piece.

So let’s get to the food part,  There we enough of us, that Tapas and Salad seemed the best choice.  The agenda here is everyone gets to taste many dishes, we do it all the time.  Everyone was in agreement, the food was nicely presented, was kind to the palate and taste buds.  Portions are plentiful and easily shared.  I am not going to wax poetic as I have been  known to do about food, just posting a few pic’s to help you see what what treats are avaialble.

There is really something for everyone and there is a child menu as well.  Service is relaxed and efficient, I encourage my readers, to take advantage of the Tuesday night special,  come out and support your local museum and enjoy a great meal as well.
