La Merenda and Engine Company Loyalty Rewards Update

We regretfully announce the end of our loyalty rewards program. After taking intocareful consideration all the additional costs to maintain the program the expense would cause us to increase our prices which we can not justify to pass along to all of our guests.   We take great pride in being able to offer great food at an affordable price and we will continue to do so.

Existing loyalty members will be able to accumulate points up until Oct. 31, 2015 and be able to redeem ($25/visit) until April 15, 2016.  

Any points not redeemed before this date will be forfeited.

The Italian word ‘mero’ stands for wine which has not been tampered with. But as such wine is bound to go to one’s head if not accompanied by something to eat, it is ritually accompanied by a merenda. La Merenda cannot be confused with the modern snack. The snack is snatched, la merenda is shared.
— Patience Gray, Honey From a Weed (1986)
