BAY HARBOR, Mich., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seventeen, the highly anticipated new restaurant from Bay Harbor's iconic clothier, trend-spotter and favorite son Lou Mettler, is poised to become an instant classic in the exclusive northern Michigan resort community. The newest epicurean addition to the Village of Bay Harbor, set to open on July 1, will celebrate the good life with fresh, local, Americana-inspired fare served in a comfortable yet sophisticated setting where guests will feel right at home during an evening out with family and friends.  

The innovative menu, crafted by Executive Chef and Michigan native Eric Basta, places a uniquely modern twist on traditional American fare. Seventeen's signature American Wagyu beef burger is topped with horseradish cheddar, local Plath's bacon and a fried farm fresh egg. Wild blue Maine mussels are sauteed in a light curry, lemongrass and coconut milk broth. Tagliatelle pasta tossed in fresh ramp pesto is served with heirloom tomatoes, basil, black garlic and English peas. Caramelized sweet cippolini onions adorn the restaurant's 14-ounce prime New York strip steak. Patrons perusing Seventeen's expansive menu will savor the originality and inventiveness of its soups, salads, sandwiches and entrees. The bar is envisioned to be the gathering spot where residents and visitors alike can go to swap stories and ideas, whet their whistle, make new acquaintances and simply enjoy the company of others.

The restaurant's renovated, redesigned space is classic Mettler. The decor is comprised of rich brown leathers, warm neutral tones and distinct black, with historical elements of America's equestrian heritage. From elegant stable paintings, equine memorabilia and handsome furniture steeped in tradition, the warm, feel-at-home atmosphere sets the tone for total comfort and relaxation. An adjoining retail space, featuring Mettler's Made in America apparel as well as home accents and accessories, offers a perfect place to browse and shop.

"In my extensive travels throughout my life, I have never seen a more beautiful waterfront than Bay Harbor," said Mettler. "I knew in my heart that this was the perfect spot to create a one of a kind restaurant offering fine food and beverages, in addition to promoting local products and contributing to the community and its economy."

Mettler named the restaurant after his lucky number 17. His passion for and commitment to America, which is also symbolized by the year 1776, made Seventeen the ideal moniker for his new establishment.

For more than 40 years, Mettler's inventive retail concepts and sophisticated style have inspired some of the world's most successful clothing brands. He is one of the founding partners of Tommy Bahama and a former retail partner of Polo Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss and Joseph Aboud. Mettler has long touted American-made, sophisticated, comfortable sportswear, as well as lifestyle and home decor items in his Mettler's American Mercantile stores. He continues to travel the country in pursuit of American-made quality products.

Seventeen, located at 795 Front Street within Village of Bay Harbor, will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. for lunch and dinner. Patio dining is available. For additional information, visit or call 231.347.1717.
