Just in time for California’s forthcoming reopening date, San Diego’s USS Midway Museum is opening a new restaurant with a bread breaking ceremony Friday.
Offering guests a variety of deli, grill and baked goods, Café 41 is ready for business. The new eatery boasts an indoor/outdoor design that can accommodate up to 400 guests at its three mean seating areas.
The museum said in a statement Café 41 was a years-in-the-making project that began with construction in 2018. It added that the kitchen of the museum’s old restaurant was gutted and replaced with a “professionally designed food station-style canteen.”
“The goal of the new café is to provide museum visitors with quality meals that they can see being freshly prepared,” the USS Midway Museum said in a statement. “Flexibility in menu and food preparation along with speed of service was top of mind in the design of Café 41.”
