Chef Alex Seidel has opened Mercantile Dining & Provision

The 75-seat restaurant will serve dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 to 11 p.m. on weekends. The market will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and serve gourmet coffee, along with a full menu of freshly prepared breakfast and lunch options. The market is filled with in-house preserved fruits and vegetables, potted meats and seafood, as well as artisanal goods from small producers.
Designed by Tricia Mueller of Larimer Associates
, the restaurant and market features a central bar led by Stuart Jensen, formerly of Green Russell
. Jensen is creating a culinary-focused cocktail program using house-made ingredients, fresh produce and provisions from the market.
"Tricia took our vision and through her design brought this place to life in a greater way than I could possibly have imagined," Seidel says.
