A restaurant that has been on the list for about a year now. (Yes, I have lists for restaurants to visit and recipes to try) But I will certainly not be waiting another year to go back.
It has the feel of an old school Wisconsin supper club, complete with cans of beer on the wall, Packer posters and a Friday Night Fish Fry. Except it is the first LEED-CI registered restaurant in Minnesota, the food is hip and it is located in NorthEast Minneapolis. The Red Stag strives to use local, organic ingredients and also conserve resources and compost waste.
truffled kettle corn – I knew this was something I would have to try, it was perfect and I will get it every-time I go back
old fashioned – “a little flat, not a lot of booze” ~ Taster
mac & cheese – with lobster and grilled leek, explains itself. Rich, decadent, delicious.
alaskan rock fish fried basket – very different batter than I’ve had in WI, in a good way
braised kale with olive oil and lemon zest – this meal clearly needed some greens, but these were more than just that, I’ll be making it at home
