There is no better way to experience a city than by eating their food. I’m traveling for work at in Minneapolis. I’ve never been here before but lined up some great places to eat.
First on the docket…..Spoon and Stable.
Spoon and Stable is located in the North Loop Neighborhood of Minneapolis and is actually located in an old stable from the early 1900s. The food focuses on seasonal ingredients with a French flair.
I had the Mediterranean Sea Bass with baby artichokes, beech mushrooms, grilled leeks, and sorrel sauce. It had a wonderful earthy flavor with some brightness from the sauce. The sea bass was perfectly cooked and the skin was nice and crispy. Sorry no pic. It was dark and blurry. 😦
For dessert I chose the Poppy Seed Angel Food Cake with rhubarb, lemongrass ice cream, and pistachios. This dessert was so complex, yet light and refreshing. Every bite was another adventure with different flavors and textures. The coolness of the rhubarb, the creaminess of the ice cream, and crunch from the pistachios.
My colleges ordered Blackberry and Beewax Crema with sesame brittle, bee pollen and cocoa nibs along with the Honey and Cream Cake with sweetened condensed milk ice cream and pears.
All the desserts were wonderfully composed with complex flavors and textures. They were light with each bite giving you a new experiences. If you go to Spoon and Stable you MUST save room for dessert.
At the end of our meal we got a cute little tin of yummy goodies. The macaroon, jelly, and chocolate were so good.
Food wise, Spoon and Stable was amazing with lots of complex favors and seasonal ingredients. The service was a bit lacking but overall it was a great experience. If you are in the Minneapolis area you should Spoon and Stable on your list!
