We are currently still closed for dining.

Although restaurants are now allowed to operate at 50% capacity, there are many additional challenges for us to face in order to make opening our doors beneficial for our guests and for us as a business.

Please stay tuned as we work through all of the details of planning our re-entry. As soon as we are able to settle on a specific opening date, we will post information here and on our social media accounts.

If you live in the Duluth area, or will be traveling through, please considering purchasing some of our meal kits and other foods available through our new sister business 'Mise en Place Marketplace' at


My name is Scott Graden, and I have been the owner of the New Scenic Café since 1999. I am a chef, consultant, and educator with over 30 years of professional restaurant experience. I find inspiration in sharing my knowledge and experience with those around me.

Over the years the New Scenic Café has been thrilled to participate in an eclectic array of catered events. Now, as the Café continues to evolve, we are excited to pursue a more focused approach to catering centered around intimate private events featuring upscale cuisine.

If you are interested in my services as a private chef for your personal celebration, culinary focus group, business meeting, or other small gathering, we would be happy to discuss a range of custom options, from cocktail parties with canapés to multi-course dinners with wine pairings.

To initiate a conversation about your ideas, please contact our catering manager, Lisa.

Thank you!

Lisa Faris, catering manager
