Business Brief: Humpback Sally's & Classic Rock Coffee

Posted: Updated:

Some new flavors are in town with two new businesses. A downtown restaurant is putting its own spin on small plates, and a Mandan business owner is playing rock and roll while serving cups of joe.

A Smith and Curran is just one of the signature cocktails served at Humpback Sally's Tavern in Bismarck, which boasts crafty cuisine too.

"We're doing really approachable but really detailed on the finer points," said Head Chef Jeremy Ficek. "What we're doing, using a lot of fresh ingredients we have very little stuff that comes in already made, so we're doing a lot of scratch cooking and we're trying to keep it fun."

The tavern serves small plates, like cowboy mac and cheese, so it's easy for customers to share or sample a few different dishes at once. And after opening last week, the manager says she thinks the community is excited to try something new.

"It gives people the opportunity to do something different," says general manager, Kate Gerwin. "We're not trying to compete with downtown we're trying to enhance downtown. We're not in direct competition with any of the other restaurants and bars we all do our different thing."

Humpback Sally's is open Wednesday through Saturday 5 p.m. until 1 a.m.

And speaking of different, a business owner in Mandan is bringing an unlikely combination, 80's rock music and coffee.

"It's something different, but what is more American than classic rock," says owner Kim Resseler. With the theme and the diversity of the products, the coffee bar is a hit.

Although it's not built yet, Ressler says Classic Rock Coffee will be a hang out spot for the whole family, offering coffee, smoothies, arcade and board games, craft beer and wine, and live music on the weekends. She says after visiting the franchise headquarters in Missouri, she knew that's what she wanted to build.

Ressler says she hopes to be able to open Classic Rock Coffee in 6 to 9 months.
