See? It is small.
Ethan Stowell's newest project, simply called mkt. (and pronounced "market") is on track to open any day now in Tangletown, but the target date is not being released, just in case things go haywire (because that's what things do sometimes). Let's just say it'll likely be before October.
The new place is located in the Keystone Building, which currently houses Tangletown Pub and Mighty-O Donuts. And ladies, leave the big purse at home, because this restaurant is only 600 square-feet and can seat less than 30 diners.
Chef Joe Ritchie is the guy who will be engineering the menu, which currently looks like this:
Grilled and marinated green beans w/sea salt, lemon 7
Fennel pollen and orange marinated picholine, nicoise olives 5
Zucchini fritters w/lemon thyme, pesto 9
Pumpernickel w/cured salmon, dill crème fraiche 11
Dinah's cheese w/walnuts and tomato-honey preserve 8
Hamachi tuna ceviche w/citrus-cucumber ice, coriander, pickled red onions 15
Grilled shrimp w/olio nuovo, fennel 15
