If you were counting the days while 112 Eatery was closed for renovations, you can relax. The iconic Minneapolis restaurant is back open and better than ever. The menu is still full of your favorite dishes along with some exciting newcomers. Here are all the details:
What Exactly Got Renovated?
The kitchen was completely revamped to become much more spacious and functional. Now that everyone has their own area, chef and co-owner Isaac Becker says you can expect higher quality dishes and a more extensive menu. Yes, the legendary brie burger and lamb scottadito are still on the menu, along with new standouts like a prawn and mango salad and a plantain empanada. You may have already gotten a preview while they were being tested at Bar La Grassa, also owned by Becker and his wife Nancy St. Pierre.
The dark cozy decor is just as you remember it. A few new touches include updated bathrooms and new bar tops. 112 Eatery was already named a semifinalist for the James Beard Award for best service, so service will remain top-notch.
What About the Brie Burger?
The 112 cheeseburger is still topped with lots of brie and set inside of an English muffin. It’s inspired by the traditional French biftek hache, a chopped beef patty fried on a skillet and served with red wine sauce. This decadent meal is one for the books.
Why Does the Bartender Look Familiar?
Does the bartender remind you of someone? That’s because John Swardson is the brother of actor and comedian Nick Swardson, who starred on the Comedy Central show Reno 911! John is also a talented folk-rock musician.
