The Bullock Texas State History Museum is searching for a new operator for its on-site restaurant.

The 6,800-square-foot space was recently remodeled by Austin firm Verokolt, museum executives said. That’s the same company that designed 24 Diner, Irene’s and Italic, among others.

The Bullock’s restaurant can seat a total of about 150 people inside and outside and is move-in ready. Water and electricity are paid by the museum, which says it will also provide marketing support.

Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. There are occasional nighttime events, as well.

Each year, the Bullock says it welcomes 450,000 visitors.

Proposals from interested restaurateurs are due by Sept. 23. For more details, visit bit.ly/BullockCafe.
