Merchants

Merchants claims "Midwestern Hospitality," so I was curious to see how that fared.

Merchants

Merchants is owned and operated by locals Chef TK and Emily Peterson, and they invite guests to come as they are. This isn't a dress code, it's our philosophy for all we do. We are here to take care. For us, it starts with the menu – we work with our neighbors to bring the best of what's available locally to the table, showcase the specialties of our region and host guests for a great meal.
Our menu is full of familiar dishes, reimagined through our lens of seasonal + local + flexible + fun. The bar program is anchored by 30 craft beers on draft, offered up along side hand-crafted cocktails and approachable wine. Come join us!

The menu was a limited one because they had Valentine's Day specials. But there were a few dishes on there that really caught out eye.

MerchantsOne of the best sellers is their brussels sprouts - with dried apricots, garlic chili mustard and cashews.

MerchantsI got a trio of wine samples - for just $15, when one of them would be $15 a glass on its own. Mine included "Teutonic Jazz Odyssey Field Blend" which is a gurwurtztraminer & riesling with caramelized green apple and refreshing acid flavors.

MerchantsMy second was the Cavicchioli 1928 Prosecco - spumante. extra dry, aromas of candied fruits, sweet flowers, lively & delicate.

MerchantsAnd my third was Neverland Cabernet - a true California cab, layered with notes of black currant, blueberry, and smoked cedar planks.

MerchantsHow cute!

MerchantsFor my main dish, I went with a "short rib gnocchi." Gaaah.
housemade ricotta gnocchi, braised beef short rib, root vegetable chips, light horseradish
