Heidi's - CLOSED
Minneapolis, MN 55408
City Pages' Description
Heidi's 2.0 picks up where its predecessor left off when it was tragically destroyed by a kitchen fire. The reborn restaurant elevates the chef-driven contemporary neighborhood eatery in a way that's both artful and savvy. Chef Stewart Woodman and his wife, the namesake Heidi, earned their stripes at several high-profile New York City restaurants, and while the original Heidi's space had a quaint, antique romance, the new one, with its art-filled dining room that resembles a theatrical set, seems to better reflect the restaurant's brash, creative cooking. Woodman builds on his former, boundary-pushing cuisine with more complex flavors, fancier platings, and molecular gastronomy tricks--everything from pickled beef tongue to a CO2-leavened, microwave-cooked version of the Chinatown pork bun. There's a sense of innovation and adventure on each plate, whether its miso-marinated salmon baked inside an orange rind, or semi-frozen chocolate mousse with dehydrated peanut butter. Between the food, the service, and the beverage lists, Heidi's maintains the standards of a fine-dining restaurant, with one major difference: None of the entrées is priced at more than $20. Such luxury has never been more affordable.
Tips from foursquare
The lamb shank ($20) is hard to beat, and if you don't eat those sweet potato beignets ($7), I will.
Because this lambshank is so primal, you'll try to pick it up and eat it like a caveman only to find that the meat'll drop right off the bone and be tender enough to cut with your fork.
Amazing food and great date night ambiance
Donuts. Go nuts.
Chef's tasting menu is always fantastic. You won't regret it.
