MISSION TABLE AT BOWERS HARBOR INN
13512 Peninsula Drive, Traverse City, 231.223.4333
There’s a feeling you get when, on a melty Northern Michigan March day, sun strong, light lingering into evening, you drive north along Traverse City’s Old Mission Peninsula to dine at Mission Table at Bower’s Harbor Inn. That feeling is called the swooning promise of Northern Michigan spring. In the luminous dining room, Chef Paul Olson amps up the allure with a prix fixe menu of handcrafted fare. For $20 a select choice of a salad, tapas-style small plate and entrée, all shaped with Mission Table’s über–local foods mission in mind. Bonus: Jolly Pumpkin beers brewed on site. missiontable.net.
