The History

Kurt Janowsky is a 30 year restaurant veteran in the area. His commitment to excellence has made his restaurants among the most popular in the region. Cafe Navarre in South Bend was named “best in the Midwest” by Midwest Living magazine, and was named “best dining experience” by the South Bend Tribune readers’ choice awards. The Exchange in South Bend is the areas first whiskey bar, with a refined speakeasy feel and a great selection of spirits. Rocky River Tap and Table is a farm to table restaurant with an eclectic menu in Mishawaka. O’Rourke’s is an Irish pub across from Notre Dame’s campus. Kurt is also responsible for the food service at the Crystal Ballroom in the Lerner Theater in downtown Elkhart, and owns and operates the area’s premier catering operation, the Matterhorn Catering and Conference Center.

Artisan is the restaurant Kurt has always wanted to open, and he choose downtown Elkhart as its home. Stylish and contemporary, it is just the right size to be able to give the food the time and attention it deserves. Artisan serves a luxurious menu with refined service in an elegant atmosphere.

Executive Chef Ryan Wilson is an Indiana native who established his present career working at four different restaurants within Navarre Hospitality Group. Originally cooking at Cafe Navarre in South Bend as well as the Matterhorn in Elkhart, Chef Ryan was also one of the instrumental aspects in the opening of Rocky River Tap and Table in Granger. When Artisan opened in 2015 under the guidance of corporate Chef Matt Jay they were awarded the coveted AAA 4 Diamond rating within their first year of business. Ryan says, “I’ve always known this is what I’m meant to do. To cook great food with seasonal produce and focus on the entire dining experience.”

Before becoming general manager of Artisan, Skyler worked in several restaurants in the Atlanta area.  He has been working in the restaurant industry in various capacities for nearly 15 years and is excited to provide our guests with an outstanding dining experience
