GRANGER, Ind. — From the minimalist wooden décor to the very name of the restaurant itself, nearly every aspect of Granger’s Rocky River Tap & Table is a reflection of the core values of its conception: freshness and simplicity.
Despite having only been open since July, the American-style bistro is already developing a reputation among area diners for a “farm-to-fork” approach to its menu, incorporating locally sourced ingredients in nearly every dish. The restaurant has deals with a dozen farms and butchers throughout the state of Indiana who supply it with the freshest meat and produce nearly every day. Even the island-style bar at the center of restaurant keeps things regional with 30 craft beers on tap from breweries within the Indiana-Michigan area.
Owner Kurt Janowsky said this concept is unique among the 12 restaurants he currently operates. After purchasing the space at University Drive’s City Plaza that was formerly occupied by the popular Scottish pub Tilted Kilt, the restaurateur set out to create an eatery with a relaxed atmosphere and sensational, yet humble, offerings.
