Wolfgang Puck is History at the IMA

The Indianapolis Museum of Art has selected Sodexo Inc. as the new foodservice provider for its on-site restaurant, reports Inside INdiana Business.

Sodexo and Indianapolis-based Kahn's Catering will become the preferred caterers for events at the IMA. In the coming weeks, Sodexo will work with the museum to develop an original restaurant concept and menu. Sodexo will replace the catering and cafe currently handled by Wolfgang Puck at the IMA.

This Indianapolis Observer remembers when Wolfgang Puck was a person, not a brand. In fact, one of his first restaurant jobs was right here in Indianapolis. He was a staffer in the kitchen of La Tour, the restaurant atop what was then the Indiana National Bank Building in the 1970s.

Too bad he couldn't keep track of the quality levels of his franchises, and got booted from the IMA!

Really? Puck's got booted? Hmm. Everytime we went there, the quality was top notch, and I, for one, will miss Puck's.
