If all goes well, you’ll be checking out Ethan Stowell’s new restaurant in just a few days.

Delays are an inevitability in any restaurant opening. But in the unlikely event that all goes right, Staple and Fancy Mercantile will be serving you, the public, starting August 16 15.

The kitchen at Ethan Stowell’s new eatery will orbit around a daily chef’s menu—Stowell will cook every evening. The chef and restaurateur, who runs his businesses with wife Angela, has pretty much turned over all the cooking at Tavolàta, How to Cook a Wolf, and Anchovies and Olives to the head chefs at those restaurants. All of those restaurants have their distinct merits and styles; it will be interesting to re-experience Stowell’s own cooking.
