A restaurateur well known to many Austinites has been tapped to run the Bullock Texas State History Museum’s revamped café.

Raj Singh, the man behind Delicious on South Lamar Boulevard, is expected to reopen the café next month, the museum said Thursday.

“We’re very pleased to have the amazing team from Delicious craft a new, 21st century museum café experience,” Margaret Koch, the museum’s interim director said, said in a written statement. “The café is a vital component the museum, adding to the visitors’ experience and supporting the overall mission of the museum.”

The 6,800-square-foot museum café underwent extensive renovation last year, with Austin design firm Verokolt overseeing the project. It seats about 150 people.

The café’s new menu, according to the museum, will feature “Texas favorites with a unique spin and with an emphasis on comfort food.”

“They’ve made a commitment to provide the best service and affordable sustenance for visitors of all ages,” Koch said. “It’s a perfect fit for the Bullock Museum, one we hope will also make the café a destination in itself.”
