Description

City Pages' 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.

    Good food. But painfully slow. Almost inexcusably slow.

  • Lisa S. on 09/03/11

    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
