City Pages's Description
Chef Justin Grecco, who opened the now-shuttered Bellanotte several years ago, has his own place, Grecco's on the St. Croix, just across the river from Taylors Falls. The divvied-up space, which includes three small dining rooms, a bar, and a river-overlooking back patio, resembles a pack rat's estate sale, decorated, as it is, with a vintage, French-style wall clock, an overbearing silk flower arrangement, an African mask, a statue of Buddha, and a bas-relief profile of a woman's face above a fireplace. And that's just in one room. The menu at Grecco's is more ambitious than you'd expect for a small town whose Main Street can be walked from one end to the other in maybe three minutes flat. Several of the dishes come from a cultural melting pot as eclectic as the decor, including the likes of rabbit confit with Israeli cous cous and a lavender-honey glace. If you can't decide what to order, the tasting menus tend to simplify things and offer good value.
Tips from foursquare
try the tomato bisque its delicious!
Food was excellent!
Worst dining experience ever. One hour wait for eggs!!!
Good food. But painfully slow. Almost inexcusably slow.
Slow service. Took over an hour to get food for 3 people. Our server didn't remember what we asked for. Younger server with dark hair was awesome- she noticed and helped
