Merchant is an ongoing endeavor, a restaurant that is a teaching kitchen, a place for an expression of our craft, and most importantly, a convivial space to dine, drink, and toast to what is possible here in Madison, WI.
MERCHANT STARTED LIFE IN MADISON IN 2010
as an energetic industrial-chic café, craft cocktail bar and late night destination specializing in no-nonsense, affordable, seasonal fare and drink steeped in the classics. Here we honor traditional cooking with a commitment to sourcing the finest ingredients around. We celebrate our growing city, innovative industry, and our thriving neighborhood, with a mission to create a space for treating each other and ourselves well.
A SPECIAL THANKS to the dedicated local farmers, producers & distributors that make this menu possible.
