The Hunter Museum of American Art has partnered with local deli owner Mindy Benton to open a café at the museum.

"The Hunter has such a beautiful view for diners to enjoy a casual lunch overlooking the Tennessee River.

We look forward to becoming a lunch destination for walkers and workers in and around the Bluff View district,” said Mindy Benton, owner of Mindy B’s Deli and manager of the Hunter Museum Café.
