South Bend, Ind. Thursday on 16 Morning News, “Ms. Foodie”, Michele Scherpenberg, joined Tricia Sloma for our latest 16 Foodie Forum segment. The goal is to connect you to the latest news happening in the restaurant and food world around Michiana.
In this edition, we highlight something new, something established that you might know about and a locally produced product.
LaSalle Kitchen and Tavern opened this week in downtown South Bend. It is located on the third floor where LaSalle Grill is (115 West Colfax Ave.). Their grand opening specials are going on all week long and on Thursday, it is a tap takeover by Greenbush Brewery, based out of Sawyer, Michigan. The LaSalle Kitchen and Tavern is considered a gastropub, meaning they serve high end food and drinks. They offer 14 taps, 22 wines and more than 120 types of whiskey. The menu and drink specials will change monthly. Reservations are only needed for parties over 8 people. You can learn more by clicking here.

The restaurant is only open for lunch, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. One thing to note, this establishment only accepts cash. Owner and chef Michele Lankford uses fresh organic ingredients in the dishes.

Christy’s Bakery and Produce’s motto is “If you can’t pronounce it, you won’t be eating it”. The products can be found at the Granger Farmers Market, Purple Porch Co-Op, Garden Patch in Mishawaka and Down to Earth in Granger. Owner Marianne Christy uses organic ingredients in her recipes. They have big plans in the works to open “Local Foods Bakery & Café” next door to the Granger Farmers Market soon. You can learn more by clicking here.
