Food from the Farm with a Side of Fun: Pogo Now Open at Marbles
AHA Partner in the Spotlight: Marbles Kids Museum
Pogo, a vibrant new downtown Raleigh eatery, opened July 18 on campus at Marbles Kids Museum and IMAX Theatre. Featuring seasonal fare prepared with local, farm-fresh ingredients, Pogo serves lunch and dinner in the newly renovated and expanded space in the IMAX building, with plenty of patio seating.
“We are excited to further Marbles commitment to fostering community by purchasing the finest ingredients from North Carolina farmers,” said Tom Meyer, president of Farmer’s Table, which operates Pogo. “From fresh produce to delicious meats to quality craft beverages, our menu features the best our state has to offer,” he continued. Farmer’s Table also operates The Q-Shack in Raleigh’s North Hills, Sprout Café at the NC Museum of Life and Science in Durham and Green’s restaurant at UNC Hospital.
According to Marbles President Sally Edwards, Pogo strengthens the museum’s capacity to build community at Marbles. “We’ve worked hard to create a concept that brings many types of people together to share good food in an upbeat and inviting atmosphere,” Edwards said.
Pogo is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 10 p.m. and on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. Visit www.PogoRaleigh.com to see menus and to learn more.
