As opening date nears for M Restaurant and Bar
, the new Cummins Station project from the couple behind Mack & Kate’s
and Macke’s, we’ve learned that M will have a sister establishment just a few doors down — a market selling meat, artisan foods and deli treats.
While M is staking out a large newly appointed restaurant space near the center of the Cummins Station retail strip, the market — we hear it will be called m.market, with the subtitle “meat market and delicatessen” — is taking over the nearby space left vacant by the recent closing of Joe Natural’s.
Owners Jan and Bernie Strawn threw a preview party for M Restaurant on Thursday (it was also a fundraiser for the cancer-fighting charity Linda’s Hope). They expect to open M on Nov. 1. There aren’t many details yet on m.market, but it should launch around the same time. M is at 209 10th Ave. S., Suite 223, in Cummins Station; m.market will be in Suite 213.
