Cafe 43 references the 43rd President of the United States—this is the George W. Bush Presidential Center, after all. With its indoor/outdoor seating overlooking the pristine landscaping and neoclassical architecture of SMU, the restaurant emits a distinguished but welcoming tone. The décor features artwork by Pamela Nelson, a local painter and friend of Mrs. Laura Bush.
