We had dinner tonight at The Bachelor Farmer tonight with Julie.  I was a bit skeptical because their menu is a bit intimidating, but...... WOW.

Here is an excerpt from their website:

Bachelor Farmer serves fresh and simple food that honors Minnesota’s Nordic heritage.  Paul Berglund and his team source the best ingredients available, which often means buying from local farmers and purveyors.  We use organic products whenever possible and also grow our own herbs and vegetables on our rooftop farm, which is the first of its kind in Minneapolis.

I didn't get any pictures because 1. the place is pretty dark and 2. it says right on the menu no flash photography.  I'll see if I can grab a couple pics off their website though.

So we shared a couple appetizers (these are served with some fancy toast):

Roasted beets, cucumber, radish, fresh cow’s milk cheese
Sugar and salt cured salmon, sweet mustard sauce, pickled cucumber <- OMG yum.  Yum.  Yum. Double Yum.

These are the toasts:

This is the salmon:

Entrees we had were:
Amber:   Meatballs, lingonberries, mashed potatoes, pickled cucumber
Julie:  House-cured pork loin and belly, braised cabbage, Thursday Night Pea Soup
Lucas:  Grilled venison, mashed rutabaga, fried kale, gjetost

It was all awesome.  Julie's not even a huge fan of Pea Soup and it was super good.  Lingonberries + Meatballs = Wow.  


Apple walnut tart, pralines, cinnamon custard
Oatmeal shortcake, spiced fruit compote, sweet creme fraiche - again, wow, wow, wow.

I highly recommend it.  And make reservations.  It was busy.
