In a tiny space that once housed Chase Jarvis Visual Media (and right nextdoor to the Elysian Tangletown), Ethan Stowell plans to open mkt., a small bar and restaurant, this fall.
Stowell, who swore off opening large restaurants after Tavolata (telling Nancy Leson that, "Filling a restaurant of that size, 85-seats, is a challenge," back in 2008), has kept his word: Staple & Fancy seats 40, so too Rione XIII. Stowell's recently opened salumeria and pizzeria, Bar Cotto, is smaller, and mkt. will be intimate as well, seating about 28.
The menu will be short, simple and market-driven, with much of the food cooked in over a wood-fired grill (the trend continues!) and prices hovering in the low teens.
mkt. will be located at 2108 N 55th Street. Watch for it to open next month.
