Davenport, Iowa (April 21, 2021) – The Figge Café featuring the culinary skills of Quad City native Chef Jason Stewart will be reopening to the public on Thursday, April 22.
Stewart, who is also known as “Chef Stu” and owner of Zeke’s Island Café in Bettendorf, will be introducing a completely updated menu that will launch in conjunction with the Café’s reopening. Items include a variety of sandwiches including the Rustic Burger that is ground fresh and hand pressed daily, vegetable cheddar chowder soup, loaded Caesar and B.L.T. salads with house made salad dressings, a selection of Bistro Bowls with various protein options, sweet treats like sour cream apple crumb, and much more.
“I want the food on the menu to compliment the art on view,” says Chef Stu, who studied culinary arts at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI and graduated with a 4.0. “As one of the top tourist destinations in the Quad Cities, it’s important the visitor experience is special whether they are in the galleries or dining in the Café.”
The Café will be open for lunch Tuesday-Friday from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. Seating will be socially distanced and there will be precautions in place to make sure the dining experience is safe and comfortable for all patrons.
“Having the Café open again provides another in-person option for our visitors to experience,” said Figge Executive Director and CEO Michelle Hargrave. “We are excited for the public to try the new menu and enjoy the spectacular river views from the dining room while sampling Chef Stu’s delicious creations.”
