Harvest's New Winter Cocktail Menu

Harvest debuts its new Winter cocktail menu today. We will be heading directly to this staple on the square to try a brand new infused cocktail, made with just as much care as their exquisite menu options. Freshness is a priority at Harvest; their menu features organic, seasonal, and locally sourced ingredients from farms and ranches in the area. Harvest's mixologists follow this philosophy as well, using fresh herbs and seasonal fruit to infuse and garnish their cocktails. Here is just a small preview of the newest releases from the bar at Harvest. Market Mule Vodka infused with fennel and blood orange, lemon juice, ginger beer, fennel frond, dried blood orange Moonlight Tequila infused wit

Patina Green's Market Dinner Delight

Patina: a : a usually green film formed naturally on copper and bronze by long exposure or artificially (as by acids) and often valued aesthetically for its color b : a surface appearance of something grown beautiful especially with age or use Patina Green Home and Market, the perfect name for a shop that focuses on bringing out the antique beauty in the items they sell and the building they occupy. Staying true to their name, the store, the items inside, the staff that run it and the food that comes out of it continue to get better with age!

New on the Square: Layered

Layered - Coffee, Bakery, Kitchen Layered seems to be the perfect name for downtown McKinney's newest eatery - every aspect of the place is composed of layers, not fitting neatly into any one specific category. From their menu, to their aesthetic design choices, right down to what type of business Layered really is… none of these things can be explained in just one word. Layered is a medley of restaurant (breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner), coffee shop and roastery, bakery and noted wedding cake designer, and event venue. On their soft opening lunch menu you will find a variety of options from hummus to a corned beef sandwich to a seared flat iron steak with chimichurri. There are wine bottle

McKinney on the Rise- what to look forward to in 2018

Thousands move to McKinney each year. But despite the housing boom there has always been a lack of commercial to support our growth. Well that looks to be changing in 2018!
