After 15 years in the restaurant industry working with the region’s top culinary talents, Chef Andrew Mersmann has developed a contemporary style with global influences which make the menu at La Poste feel like one exciting discovery after another. Chef Mersmann has a passion for original ingredients with special considerations for organic and sustainable farming practices. Because of his healthy appetite for fine wine and craft beer, Chef Mersmann works closely with the wine list to create a wine-friendly menu and the perfect “total experience”. Each dish has been carefully paired with, and sometimes created for a specific wine in La Poste’s cellar. For more information, see http://www.laposteeatery.com/index.html
