On the afternoon of Thursday, Jan. 8, the ribbon was cut on Warsaw’s newest eating establishment: One Ten Craft Meatery located at 110 N. Buffalo St.
“It’s a huge pleasure to find a place to call home,” said One Ten owner Jason Brown. “We’re thrilled to be here.”
One Ten will offer a variety of dine in and take out options. During lunch hours, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, its a hand-crafted sandwich shop. For dinner service, 5-9:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, it’s a swanky steak and wine bar. Additionally, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday there is a meat shop where patrons can pick up a variety of fresh meats.
“We try to support local as much as possible,” Brown said. The restaurant sources the majority of its ingredients from the Indiana and neighboring states.
Though One Ten Craft Meatery offers limited quantities of a limited menu (11 entrees, six sides and six salads), Brown states dishes are of the utmost quality. “We’re taking it up to a level of care not found anywhere else in the world,” he said.
Brown also says the menu changes regularly. Menu planning starts with, “‘guys, what do you want to make this week?” said Brown. “This is a lot of fun for our staff.”
The restaurant received a facade grant from the city of Warsaw, which it used to transform the old Blue Moon Shoes location into a warm and inviting social space. The dining room can accommodate up to 48 diners, but for those who prefer to eat in the comfort of home, One Ten offers the ‘Chef’s Box.’ Let the staff know your dining needs and they will put together a delicious take-home meal. “It’s basically the ‘plug and play’ of food,” Brown said. Though meat is the star of the show at One Ten, vegetarian options are available.
The dining room is walk-in only and diners must 21 years of age or older. However, minors accompanied by an adult are welcome to visit the meat counter during daytime business hours.
An incredibly large number of local officials and community members attended the ribbon cutting to show support of Brown and the rest of the One Ten staff. “I’ve never been a part of something like this,” he said. “It’s overwhelming.”
At present, One Ten Craft Meatery is fully operational. For more information and menu visit 110craftmeatery.com.
