FROM THE KITCHEN
FROM THE KITCHEN
Executive Chef Scott Harrell and his team of talented chefs have prepared a menu that champions the best seasonal produce and ingredients from around Madison. Our chefs are proud to feature local and sustainable farms throughout the menu.
From WI classics like fried cheese curds and specialty sandwiches to artisanal charcuterie boards, oysters, and shareable small plates to stunning entrees. Merchant's frequently rotating offerings are as fresh and delicious as they are diverse.
MADISON'S FIRST CRAFT COCKTAIL BAR
Established in 2010, Merchant has been designing compelling artisanal cocktails for over a decade. Lead by Caitlyn Nicholson, the award-winning bar program crafts local ingredients into house-made syrups, tinctures, & fresh-squeezed juices. These are then combined with quality spirits & specialty ice.
The result... strikingly cold, balanced, fresh, and delicious seasonal libations.
Merchant also offers a large selection of approachable and sought-after wines & spirits, as well as the best of local craft beers. The expansive Wine List, helpfully organized by character is cultivated by James Juedes. The collection showcases estate-grown vineyards with organic and biodynamic farming practices from around the world.
