The Mercantile Opens Thursday, District Still A Few Weeks Off

It looks The Mercantile, George Abou-Daoud's wine bar and gourmet shop is finally finished and set to soft open this Thursday November 12 with an official debut Monday. The interior is reminiscent of Bottega Louie but more rustic with soaring ceilings, lots of white, tiles, and wooden shelving. The east side of the building serves as a marketplace while the opposing area (sans windows) houses chairs and tables for those who choose to dine-in. The kitchen is up and running this very moment with chef Kris Morningstar previewing lunch fare off his forthcoming menu: pastrami, Gruyere, sauerkraut slaw pressed on rye; ham, Gruyere, and black tuffle butter on baguette. He also plans to serve salads, homemade pastries (both savory and sweet), homemade ice-cream with fun flavors including caramel-corn to blueberry-lavender to apple strudel.

In addition, The Mercantile will also sell a variety of cheeses/charcuterie plus homemade terrines and pates. Those looking for more of a dinner experience can get excited about District, Abou-Daoud's seasonal American bistro located next door and estimated to open in a few weeks.
