Welcome to Eleven, the restaurant at Crystal Bridges. We specialize in modern American comfort food with an emphasis on traditions that hail from the “high South and low Midwest” region…the Ozarks. Our “edible responsibility” approach demonstrates our commitment to promoting and celebrating local food culture, featuring fresh ingredients from the Bentonville Farmers’ Market and other food artisans in Northwest Arkansas. The robust cuisine of Eleven not only nourishes, but also tells a story—inspired by the artworks, natural surroundings, and fascinating regional history connected to our Museum.
