For Christmas last year, we received a very large gift certificate for the Spoon and Stable Restaurant in Minneapolis.
We decided to go for brunch one very cold winter Sunday. Reservations HAVE to be made online and they are normally booked a couple of months out. Brunch was amazing! Everything was fresh and they try to accommodate any special requests such as a side scrambled egg that I wanted.
Since brunch was so wonderful and didn’t use anywhere near the amount of the gift certificate, we reserved a couple of spots for dinner.
The inside of Spoon and Stable is very open and has high ceilings which can make for a noisy dinner. Fortunately, our reservation was for when the restaurant opened, so they sat us in a nice quiet corner near the cooking station where we could see the chefs at work.
I didn’t get pictures of everything we ate but here are three.
The Wild Mushroom Soup below was superb, and I don’t like mushrooms (my friend ordered this).
Everything was simply superb! From the service to the food ~
Dinner is a LOT more expensive than brunch. The $150 gift certificate we received would have paid for dinner and a tip but since we used part of it for brunch we wound up having to pay a little out of pocket (mainly the tip).
This is definitely a place we would like to return to ~ IF we can get a reservation. Hmmm … maybe I’ll reserve now for my birthday this summer.
