City Pages' Description
Chef Hector Ruiz and his wife Erin Ungerman have made this casual eatery a favorite of south Minneapolis residents. In the winter, the covered booths are so cozy and colorful they'll almost make you forget it's cold and gray outside, and in the summer, the popular outdoor seating is a reminder of why we tolerate our winters. The restaurant's Sunday through Thursday happy hour is a boon for carnivores and vegetarians alike: The menu features refreshingly adventurous snacks such as sherry-glazed chorizo and seared saffron scallops, alongside roasted mushrooms, tangy olives, and baked brie served with an apple-cider apricot sauce.
