June 2019

The entire staff, especially Chef Ben and the rest of the kitchen, work incredibly hard during the Cookbook Season, so when it ends we like to give them a little time to rest and relax. KIDDING! Once Cookbook season ends, Produce season kicks into high gear! Spring and Summer are such an amazing time to be a restaurant in Northern Michigan. Currently the fresh, local asparagus, ramps, and morels are abundant. Soon it will be beets, strawberries, carrots, zucchini, eggplant, and sweet corn; one of our favorites Caprese Salads made with Zenner tomatoes will be back soon. Summer also brings with it our daily Farmer’s Market additions: regional vegetables, fruit & proteins sourced by our chefs to create a dish with all local ingredients.

Am I forgetting anything? I think I might be.

Oh, that’s it….CHERRIES! Cherry Cobbler, Cherry Chicken Salad, Cherry cocktails! Pretty soon we’ll all have cherries coming out of our ears, and with that comes Cherry Festival! This year Cherry Festival will run June 29th-July 6th, there will be a few days where Front Street is closed (Check the “Looking Forward” section for dates & times), but rest assured, even when the street is closed we will still be observing our summer business hours. Summer in Traverse City is such a fun, beautiful time and we look forward to being part of that with all of you.
