Sunday at the Museum, chef Deuki Hong’s collaboration with Andrew Chau and Bin Chen of Boba Guys, opens today at the Asian Art Museum. The cafe is just one piece of the museum’s ongoing $90 million renovation effort and it’s also Hong’s first standalone restaurant in San Francisco.
The Sunday at the Museum team said the opening day menu has room to grow as the cafe’s kitchen gets up and running, but for now, it’ll have bentos, chicken wings, salads and sandwiches like a Korean fried chicken sandwich and a variation of a grilled pork banh mi.
On the beverage front, the Boba Guys are taking a deep dive into Asian teas, going so far as to say there’s a “sommelier-style tea service” in the works down for folks searching for a more intimate tea experience.
Later this spring when the museum begins closing at 9 p.m., Hong and company plan to host a Thursday night happy hour featuring a prix-fixe dinner menu.
The food and drinks are meant to sync up with the museum’s programs and exhibitions, which means lots of rotating menus. More importantly, the business partners said they want to convey the complexity of Asia’s many countries, cuisines and cultures through their offerings.
Sunday at the Museum: Located at the Asian Art Museum 200 Larkin St.; Open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday (the museum is closed on Mondays).
