When I first visited Market 17 in the months after its October 2010 opening, I sensed that sibling restaurateurs Kirsta and Aaron Grauberger had a hit on their hands. But I wondered if their timing was just a little off.

The Great Recession was still raging, and Market 17 promised to use organic ingredients whenever possible. Were we ready to pay for such an extravagance?

We were, and we are.
