Legendary Restaurant to anchor Arlington-managed Merchants Plaza downtown Mobile

Kristi Barber, owner of The Cheese Cottage, announced her big news from the “big news space” in a Facebook video.

Mobile’s popular lunch, brunch and more spot, The Cheese Cottage, is opening a new venue in downtown Mobile. The Cheese Merchant, a tapas and shareables restaurant, will open at the corner of St. Joseph and St. Merchant streets at the bottom of the 1920′s Merchant’s National Bank.

“Before you get all crazy on me: We are not moving The Cheese Cottage,” Barber told viewers. “The Cheese Cottage with its sandwiches, soups, cheese boards and great salads will stay right where it is on St. Luis Street.”

The Cheese Merchant will be focused on cheese, tapas and small plates. Barber teased viewers with the prospect of goat cheese grits before unveiling the expected opening date of June 2020. The venue includes a large courtyard.

“It’s going to be fantastic,” she said.
