Restaurants To Try This Month:
Wise Acre: Wise Acres farm-to-table approach is actually built into their business plan. So, while some restaurants may claim to offer the freshest ingredients, 75 to 95 percent of ingredients offered by the restaurant originate on sister business Tangletown Gardens’ 100-acre farm in rural Plato, MN. This South Minneapolis gem is the perfect place to celebrate the re-birth of the seasons as spring matures.
Grey Duck: As much as we want it to be over, winter weather could still end up hitting Minnesota this month. So, for those April days that are more “lion” than “lamb”, don your raincoat (or snowcoat) and snuggle in at a cozy spot like the Grey Duck in St. Paul. Choose from a variety of globally inspired comfort fare, creative cocktails & craft brews in laid-back environment that has something for everyone.
