Forepaugh's Restaurant

This elegant Victorian mansion, long known for its classic French fare, was starting to feel a bit stuffy before it was purchased by corporate food-service guru Bruce Taher, who also owns the Wayzata and Nordeast Eateries. Chef Donald Gonzales, formerly of Chambers Kitchen, has modernized and globalized the seasonally changing menu, which features an updated (and even more delicious) version of Forepaugh's famed beef Wellington, and he has included everything from Thai curry to an elegant take on the Canadaian bar snack poutine. Your selection from the wine list will be delivered from the new glass-encased wine cellar tucked into the limestone-walled basement. Despite all the remakes and renovations, one thing hasn't changed: The place is still supposedly inhabited by a ghost named Molly, the alleged lover of the mansion's original owner, Joseph Forepaugh, who hung herself from a chandelier.
