As a grizzled New Yorker, suspect of pretty much any place west of the Hudson, I was put off by the name and even more put off by the out of the way location and the farm feel of the decor. But then an amazing waiter appeared and made magic happen. Their super creative approach to leaving a range of wines open to sell by the glass made for some great experimentation and delightful surprises that were moderately priced. But the FOOD is the thing. Probably the most flavorful and tender duck i have ever had anywhere. And so it went through each course and offering. The servers explain and listen and kill themselves to create a great evening for you. The ever changing "serve what's fresh" menu uses simple items in complex and rewarding ways ... wonderful combinations of tastes and textures. BIG flavors. You won't impress anyone with the atmosphere, but any foodie will be thrilled with the experience.

Great place to get a taste of Minnesota with a finer flare. Service is always great in a discreet way. Hands down best time to go is on Monday Night for the chop night. They butcher a whole pig on Friday, brine over the weekend and grill the chops Monday night for the BEST tasting pork chops of your life.

Neat , casual warehouse that was packed on a Sunday night. Very Popular. My wife and I decided to order a three course tasting menu. The first course was a pastrami appetizer in a tasty sauce. However the pastrami had a lot of fatty streaks in it. My wife returned hers and substituted a salad. The second was a roasted chicken with many vegetables. The theme there is this farm to table craze now seen at many restaurants.It was tasty but there was a lot more dark meat and the portion was small. The desserts were good. A bit pricey for what we received and the waitress seemed to rush us.Could have been better.

This place was busy tonight. John took supreme care of us at the marvel bar. We had 4 small plates between three people. The stand out was the sugar snap pea and shiitake mushroom composition and the duck liver pâté with pickles. All dishes today had the Scandinavian pickle or acid touch.
