Theory Eatery, or simply Theory, is an American cuisine restaurant at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry located alongside the Willamette River in the Central Eastside Industrial District of the eastern part of Portland, Oregon, United States.[1]


Theory was opened on January 30, 2013, as an addition to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), with 9,100 square-feet of dining space.[1] Mark Patel, developer director of OMSI, was the person behind the creation of Theory.[2] The restaurant is part of the museum, and serves American cuisine and also offers exhibits, science demonstrations and private and public events.[2] Bon Appétit Management Company operates the restaurant. It provides seasonally fresh as well as locally sourced ingredients from around the Portland metropolitan area.[2] Ryan Morgan is the head chef.[3] Theory is located off of the Willamette River, with views of the Tilikum Crossing, Marquam Bridge, and the downtown Portland skyline.

In November 2013, Theory was redesigned, and included a new 10-by-50-foot mural of photographed ingredients arranged with formulas on the background. It was designed by OMSI graphic artist Melissa Hicks.[4]
