When the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit exhibit goes on display at the DIA next month, visitors will have the opportunity to dine in a special pop-up space in the museum. The temporary restaurant will feature "light Mexican fare, beer, wine, and margaritas" according to Pamela Marcil, a representative from the DIA. Marcil couldn't comment on further details. However, a tipster tells Eater the restaurant will be located near the Kirby Street entrance in an unused gallery with enough space to seat 95 people.

The DIA exhibit will be on display March 15 through July 12. The unnamed pop-up's hours will be 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Wednesday; 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday; 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. On May 30, the restaurant's weekend hours will change to 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday through Sunday.

Tipping is essential. Heard a rumor? Send it to the tip line and Eater will check it out.
