City Pages' Description

The talented team at the Bachelor Farmer, assembled by brothers and co-owners Eric and Andrew Dayton, is bringing the simple sophistication of clean flavors and complex textures--like sour and chewy dried cherries, creamy and earthy duck liver pâté, and ripe, salty pistachios--and making them a huge part of a re-imagined smorgasbord experience. Chef Paul Berglund has also managed to breathe new life into the cuisine that many Minnesotans were first introduced to by their Scandinavian grandmothers. Cured salmon, softly spiced meatballs made with milk-soaked breadcrumbs and begging to be dunked in tart lingonberry sauce, briny pickled herring, venison, and even roasted beets are prepared in a way that makes you feel as though you're appreciating them for the first time. It will require patience and planning to snag a table, but sometimes throwing caution to the wind pays off. Even if it doesn't, you couldn't ask for a better place to bide your time than at the adjoining Marvel Bar.

Tips from foursquare

  • Heavy Table on 09/06/11

    Get the meatballs for a main, and the seasonal greens (the buttery, indulgent kale, if you can get it) for a side.

  • City Pages on 09/13/13

    Taste the house-cured salmon, a jewel of the sea coaxed to life with pristine salty sea sweetness.It's difficult to choose between the stellar wine selection and the cocktails created by Pip Hanson.

  • Heavy Table on 10/01/12

    Check out the Caraway Shandy ($8), which features aquavit, lemon, honey, and pilsner beer. It's like the best sparkling lemonade you've ever had.

  • Bruce C. on 02/18/12

    Real butter served with salt for your radishes.

  • studioL on 09/05/11

    No photography rule. Check the menu.
