New Kitchen
Staging Pantry

The Arboretum Restaurant, located on the second floor of the new $20 million Oswald Visitors Center offers a wide variety of dining options. Each day, the Restaurant serves delicious lunches including a variety of homemade soups, salads, fresh bakery options, grab & go items and a daily “hot dish” special. Special menu items feature organic foods as well as produce from the Arboretum’s own gardens. The Restaurant’s Java City Coffee is 100% fair trade.

The new restaurant includes a 1,600 square foot kitchen, and 205 seating area with both private and outdoor terrace areas. We also designed a lower level staging pantry adjacent the conference/class rooms. The Arboretum’s full catering service offers an outstanding array of food and beverage selections designed to meet a variety of needs. It is a spectacular setting for educational seminars, corporate meetings, weddings and other special events.
