Short ribs: One of One Ten Meatery’s specialties is its slow braised short ribs. They are served atop smoked mashed potatoes and covered with mushroom demi glace. Swiss chard casserole is a perfect accompaniment.

Serving great food and ensuring customers have a positive dining experience are hallmarks of a top-notch restaurant. But One Ten Craft Meatery in downtown Warsaw goes above and beyond through its mission of creating a strong community by investing in people. Owner Jason Brown notes, “If you develop people, your community is a better place.” As well, he and his staff donate to nonprofits, provide leftover food to a local homeless shelter and recycle as much as possible to reduce their carbon footprint.

Ingredients used at One Ten are locally sourced from in and around Indiana, fresh and in season. The menu is varied and unique — with offerings like street corn and poutine. Of course, with “meatery” in its name, expect savory selections like wild boar tenderloin, braised short ribs and steak cuts like ribeye, Denver, flat iron and filet. One Ten also serves the most sought-after steak — Wagyu beef. Bacon lovers (and who isn’t a bacon fan?) must try the Flight of Bacon appetizer with a choice of three types of bacon served with creamed honey, duck-fat fried buttermilk biscuits, pork rinds and blackberry goat cheese.

The dessert menu features delectable delights like a duck egg crème brulee featuring lemon custard, lavender shortbread and candied lemon zest.

Among One Ten’s fans is Rep. Craig Snow, a Warsaw resident who loves the restaurant’s atmosphere and food. “Jason has been very creative over the years and especially during the pandemic.” That creativity extends to One Ten’s extensive and innovative cocktail menu which is thoughtfully divided into categories like signature, bright, bubbly, sour and spiritous.

Visit this Kosciusko County gem for dinner Wednesdays through Saturdays from 5:30-8:30 p.m. You can also order food items online for pickup or have One Ten cater an event for you either at a location of your choice or at The Vic, One Ten’s event venue.

One Ten patrons should be aware that tipping wait staff is not allowed. The restaurant builds the tip into the price of the food to ensure those waiting on you are paid competitive wages and receive a guaranteed income.
