Minnesota’s ‘Bucket List’ Restaurant Is Just 90 Miles Away from Rochester
It's been dubbed Minnesota's 'Bucket List' restaurant by a new national survey, but I'm guessing you probably haven't been there or heard of it, even though it's just 90 miles away from Rochester.
The travel website Cheapism.com just published a list called, 'The Bucket List Restaurant In Your State,' where they singled out what they picked as the nation's best restaurants. 'We've scoured the country for some of the most swoon-worthy cuisine in every state. These are the often-iconic restaurants where you'd go to celebrate a special occasion,' the site said.
So which one made the list for Minnesota? I was thinking it had to be a restaurant located in the Twin Cities, right? Maybe Murray's, Manny's or Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. But, nope. While their choice IS is Minneapolis, it isn't any of those. In fact, I'd not even heard of this restaurant.
It's Travail Kitchen and Amusements. And according to their website, they're now located along Hennepin Avenue in the Lowry Hill District in Minneapolis while they remodel their permanent home on West Broadway in Robbinsdale.
Apparently, though, Travail Kitchen and Amusements is one amazing restaurant. It's "a rustic-chic foodie hotspot run by three James Beard Award semi-finalists who aim to 'curate a chef-driven customized dining spectacular,'" Cheapism said.
And, according to their website, they just debuted their new Uffda menu, a "Scandanavian, midwestern-inspired menu in collaboration with the amazingly talented Karyn Tomlinson, 'the queen of pork', whose resume includes the Chef De Cusine at local Corner Table and spending an entire winter cooking at Fäviken," their site noted.
So, yeah, there it is... Minnesota's 'Bucket List' restaurant. Which place gets YOUR vote for Minnesota's 'Bucket List' restaurant?
