City Pages' Description

Chef Don Saunders, the former proprietor of Fugaise, returns to the stove in a more inviting south Minneapolis space. The cozy, intimate dining room, which previously housed Café Maude's Armatage Room, offers a menu loosely based on what's "in season," locally and domestically, and using ingredients at their peak. That means root vegetables such as beets and rutabagas from Minnesota and Wisconsin farms join West Coast oysters and southern citrus. Saunders is a master of flavor pairings and meticulous technique, whether he's cooking Limousin beef tenderloin with baby turnips and sweet potato cubes or monkfish with garlicky spinach and five spice gnocchi. In Season has all the best attributes of a great neighborhood restaurant, but even if you don't live in Armatage, it's still worth a drive.

Tips from foursquare

  • Heavy Table on 01/30/11

    The charcuterie plate (half made in-house, half sourced) is stellar, recalling the glory days of the Craftsman. What's more -- this one will remain on the menu for the long haul.

  • Robert S. on 10/17/11

    Four seasons, four menus. Just go with his prix fixe menu.

  • CBS Local on 11/01/11

    The butter, mixed with honey and lemon zest, is good enough to eat on its own. - CBS MN

  • Terri A. on 07/20/11

    The cous cous with chickpeas and fava I'd not to be missed

  • Shibity S. on 02/10/13

    Service was great! Our server, NY Transplant Derek, was very friendly and knowledgable.
