A follower of our blog named Louise wrote us about a restaurant and shop she has opened in Dorset, U.K. and kindly sent along lots of photos. I love this! I can totally see myself spending a Sunday afternoon shopping and having a bit of wine and a snack here.
Brassica Restaurant & Mercantile is an independent hospitality and retail brand located in the heart of Hardy Country - West Dorset. The restaurant offers an outstanding experience of delicious food, wine and service in a stylish environment. The menu is produce-led using seasonal food grown, raised, caught or collected in Dorset and the South West. The modern European dishes change daily. The menu has been designed to encourage an informal way of eating: people can share main courses, order a selection of starters or just pop in for a glass of wine and a plate of charcuterie.
Mercantile is the retail arm of Brassica offering a bespoke range of goods that focus on the 'art of entertaining' and convivial gatherings. The shop next door and online sells a carefully curated number of lifestyle items selected from around the globe and which reflect the aesthetic used in the interior of the restaurant. The shop offers a mix of linens, candles, tableware, glassware and cookware, many of which are used in the actual restaurant. Specialist food and fine wine is available alongside books, furniture, textiles, homewares and a number of vintage items. (OMG I want this velvet bedspread!)
