It takes a team.

Brenda Sutherland and Richard Mockler founded Marina Mercantile in 2022, hoping to fill a gap for Des Moines, WA, residents searching for sophisticated food and wine options and a quiet, comfortable place to gather.  

Originally supported by opening manager Joey Kline, the team quickly grew to encompass customer-favorite front-of-the-house lead Brennan. 
We've added Olivia and Maren to the kitchen production team. Olivia comes to us with years of experience in Seattle kitchens and espresso styling, she makes our amazing soups, hot dishes, and deli salads. Maren is a graduate of the PSSC culinary program and supports our Afternoon Tea menu with scones, sandwiches, and more.  
Working the front of house and the kitchen David is new to the PNW. You'll be instant friends with David and he makes a fantastic tuna melt. 

We are always looking for committed food and wine lovers who value the opportunity to serve the community with the most fundamental of human exchanges. If you'd like to join our team, please get in touch.
