The Cooks House

A treat for the tastebuds is exactly how I would describe Traverse City's 18 seat bistro, The Cook's House. Rarely do I get to enjoy the fabulous cuisine in the area but, yesterday local photographer and designer Chandra Demers of Hitching Post Photography and I met for lunch at this hidden treasure on Front Street in downtown TC.

A simple and uncomplicated menu designed with flavor combinations that seem to dance effortlessly on the pallet are what keeps the doors opening and closing throughout the day. From the bright colored interior to the cozy seating arrangements with white linen and parchment paper, this atmosphere is reminiscent of the cafes in Paris where friends and once dined.

Chef's and owner's Eric Patterson and Jennifer Blakeslee are transforming the local cuisine scene as we know it. From the famed Andre's restaurant in Las Vegas Patterson and Blakeslee breathe life and love into food with a passion that's spreading like wildfire. The restaurant is open Monday thru Saturday 11am to 9pm serving lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended an can be made by calling 231.946.8700.

As my newest favorite I look forward to many more meals shared and experienced at The Cook's House!
