Chef’s Table: Spring Beauty

During the meal, enjoy an engaging conversation with Chef William McCormick while admiring the blooming Ozark forest surrounding the museum through floor-to-ceiling glass windows. 

 “Prepared and fast foods have given us the time and freedom to see cooking as an art form – a form of creative expression.”—Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet Keeps the Feast

About Chef’s Table 

Chef’s Table is a coveted interactive dining experience like no other in Northwest Arkansas. Enjoy a four-course meal of uncommon, yet contemporary, American cuisine. The menu changes with the seasons to highlight the freshest regional ingredients. Chef McCormick’s dishes, set against unique and inventive backdrops, have the power to create an unforgettable shared experience among guests. We promise to offer you a remarkable and memorable culinary journey. During your meal, enjoy a lively conversation with Chef William McCormick, head chef of Eleven, on topics ranging from ingredients, wine and cooking techniques, inspirations behind each dish, and the art of creating five-star cuisine.

Locally Sourced Ingredients: We have an appreciation for our history, the region, and tradition. We are proud of our local farmers and ranchers, those who have done the work to get such delicious ingredients through our kitchen door. Chef McCormick’s goal is to make as much of what is used from scratch as possible – we think that is what makes cuisine authentic. We locally source our ingredients from farms throughout the region. Always fresh, always inventive.

For Your Safety: As a safety precaution and to comply with CDC guidelines, Crystal Bridges and the Momentary require that face coverings are worn by visitors ages 10 and older in the museum and at outdoor programs and events, as well as at food and drink venues, except when eating and drinking. Participants will be asked to practice social distancing of at least six feet for the safety of all attendees.


Chef’s Table is sponsored by Cindy Flynt Walters and Betty Flynt.
