Blue Ridge Catering, a 10-year-old Roanoke company, is taking over management of Norah’s Cafe, the restaurant at the Taubman Museum of Art in downtown Roanoke.
The cafe, which is closed for cleaning in preparation for the takeover, is scheduled to reopen about July 9.
The museum’s chief operating officer, Kathryn Garvin, said last week that the museum put out a request for proposals for the cafe management a few months ago. Blue Ridge Catering submitted a proposal, as did the management company at that time, Quest Management LLC.
Blue Ridge’s proposal more closely fit the model that has been successful at other museum cafes, Garvin said, so Norah’s chef Jerome Bonds and Quest were let go.
Bonds said last week that he’ll likely take some time off to rest before seeking other opportunities.
Mark Baldwin, a 35-year-old Roanoke native, owns Blue Ridge Catering, which is headquartered on Salem Avenue.
