Midi Press Release


Marie Schmidt will become the new owner of the Midi restaurant in the space currently operated by Bennett’s in Fitger’s. Midi will be completely remodeled in October and will open in November 2007.

Midi encompasses the southern French regions of Aquataine, Languedoc and Provence. The Midi is bounded by Spain and Pyrenees to the south and by Italy and the Alps to the North and East. It means Mediterranean restaurant and bar.

“It has been a long search to find someone who exemplifies the four diamond standards required by Fitger’s”, said Scott Vesterstein, Executive Vice President . Along with serving fine meals in the restaurant, Midi will also be providing room service for Fitger’s Inn, Duluth’s only four diamond hotel, catering, banquets, dinner theatre and outdoor dining.
Marie Schmidt is of German descent and she studied Hotel-Restaurant Management in Switzerland working throughout Europe before moving to the United States in 1982. Her parents owned a Hotel- Restaurant in Germany where she gained much experience making this a perfect fit for Fitger’s.

Duluth was always a favorite place for Marie to visit and she felt Fitger’s would be an excellent location to open a restaurant featuring her signature recipes. Currently Marie also operates a successful German Restaurant in Hudson, Wisconsin “Winzer Stube” known for great food prepared in house from scratch every day “ Simply fresh and good” . Marie and her restaurant have been showcased twice on a national T V Show “Rebecca’s Garden” featuring Marie’s renowned soups.

It is Marie’s goal to bring great food, extraordinary service and ambience to her new restaurant, Midi.

Midi will be serving a Continental menu with Mediterranean influenced cuisine overlooking Lake Superior in the historic Fitger’s Complex.
Midi will also feature an extensive assortment of Single Malt Scotch and a great selection of wines by the bottle or by the glass.
