Dining at the DMA
Dallas Museum of Art’s new outdoor cafe serves something very special
The Dallas Museum of Art is expanding its eating options with a crepe-happy al fresco dining spot called Socca Mediterranean Cafe. Socca is the name of a savory chickpea crepe which will be the eatery's signature dish.
Chef Sharon Hage, who owned and operated York Street, worked with the DMA to develop the concept, which will serve as a complement to the DMA Cafe.
Popular throughout the Mediterranean coast, socca is found in southern France and is a specialty of Nice. The entrée, which is gluten free, is similar in appearance to a golden crepe and can be topped with fresh salads or enjoyed on its own.
At the DMA, the crepe will be prepared with olive oil and black pepper and baked in an imported Italian oven. Toppings will be Mediterranean-inspired, in options both savory and sweet: from burrata, prosciutto, roast chicken, and artichoke salad to almond butter with bananas and honey.
Socca will also offer cured meat and cheese plates and hummus with olives and veggies. Beverages include fruit limeades, wines, and local beer on tap.
Socca is located in the recently unveiled Eagle Family Plaza at the DMA’s north entrance, and it will be open during regular museum hours starting June 7.
