The DAM's Wyeth Exhibition Inspires New Palettes Menu

Inspired by Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio, Palettes has crafted a menu worthy of joining the artistic conversation between father and son.

The executive chef of Palettes, Austin Cueto, has created a $34, three-course, prix fixe menu unique as the artistic voices of Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. When asked about the inspiration for the menu, Austin said, “While researching Andrew and Jamie’s work, not only did I become a near-instant fan, but also found a lot of useful material that I was able to translate into our food. From Andrew’s imagery to Jamie’s darker side, I really enjoyed spending the time connecting their art to the culinary world.”

The prix fixe menu is also available with wine pairing at $49.
