Myers’ Deli & More has remodeled to add an event space to the restaurant on the first floor of The Carpenter Building in downtown Sioux Falls.
Owner Dan Myers, who also operates Myers Elite Catering Service, is offering the area for parties, special dinners and meetings. Customers who order food through the catering service can use the room for free, otherwise Myers will charge a small fee. The space includes a bar that can be used to serve beer and wine.
“We fit 65 back here (for a stop on the Sioux Falls Dairy Crawl). To feel comfortable, I probably wouldn’t go over 50, but we could. Depending on the time of day, we could even put people up front and utilize both spaces if the party is big enough.”
The seating can be arranged in a variety of configurations, and smaller gatherings of even just eight or 10 people are welcome, Myers said.
Once warmer weather returns, he plans to serve dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
“What I want to do is more upscale food to blend in with the crowd downtown. … We’ll probably start that after Valentine’s Day when we start coming back out of winter, but so right now, we’ll be using it more for events and different things. We might do a couple of dinners and wine events, and we’ll post those on Facebook.”
The smaller front space is meant to have more of a deli feel, Myers said.
“We added TVs. We want it to be a nice environment to come hang out, talk and mingle. We have free Wi-Fi.”
In addition to coffee and soda, diners can order wine by the glass or beer in bottles and cans.
Next month, Myers plans to add hamburgers and appetizers to the menu of deli sandwiches, hot dogs and the soup and salad bar.
The deli at 221 S. Phillips Ave. is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
