Mint Mark, now buzzing in the former Mermaid Café space at 1929 Winnebago St., turns out a smart, constantly changing parade of cocottes, cast iron bakers and gratin dishes from its open galley kitchen six nights a week.

It’s an evolving showcase of skill from chef and co-owner Sean Pharr, who opened the restaurant in mid-December with longtime friend Chad Vogel, owner of the Robin Room cocktail bar.
