I just saw the sad news that a favorite restaurant is closing next week, February 5th. If you have not tried Grand Cafe, you have 1 week.
I’ve had many great meals at Grand Cafe over the last 10 years. We tend to go there more in the winter as it has such a cozy atmosphere that just calls out during the cold winter days. We often would meet there after the hubby landed at the airport after a business trip. I’d get there early and enjoy a glass of red at their tiny bar.
They had a great brunch including the hubs’ favorite, Eggs en Cocotte – poached eggs, puff pastry, Gruyere truffle cream, ham and sourdough. I didn’t have one “go to” dish there, but everything was tasty. One evening we were looking for a Sunday dinner option with my friend before she flew back to Arizona. We tried one place that was closed and then ended up at Grand Cafe for Sicilian pizza night! We absolutely loved the pizza that night – so much so that we got a second half after polishing off the first half.
I suppose all good things must come to an end, but I am very sad to see this one go. If you are a Mpls reader, figure out a time to get there in the next week. You won’t be disappointed!
