The Huntington Launches New Era in Dining


The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens announced today that it has ushered in a new era of destination dining on its historic grounds by contracting with Palo Alto-based Bon Appétit Management Co. for dining and catering services. Bon Appétit begins providing service at The Huntington on Nov. 1.

Once a Gilded-Age millionaire’s estate, The Huntington now welcomes 750,000 visitors a year and features five dining spaces: the main café, with indoor and outdoor seating and sweeping views of the Huntington mansion and grounds; the Rose Garden Tea Room, nestled between the Rose and Herb gardens; the Chinese Garden tea shop (known as the Freshwater Pavilion), overlooking a lake in a traditional Chinese Garden; the Rose Garden patio, open on weekends; and the coffee shop at the Education and Visitor Center. In addition to providing dining services at The Huntington’s various locations, Bon Appétit will also provide catering for private events.
