Cafe Maude at Loring - Closed

1612 Harmon Place Minneapolis, MN 55403 | Minneapolis (Downtown) | 612-767-9080

Location Description:

The popular Cafe Maude in the Armatage neighborhood has opened a sister restaurant in Loring Park, in the utterly transformed space once occupied by Nick and Eddie's. The new outpost boasts the same casual atmosphere and sophisticated food and drinks, though several items are new to the Loring Park menu. The bar program, headed by Adam Harness formerly of Town Talk Diner and Chad Larson, is outstanding. It's a major draw for the this branch, which will need to cater both to a younger audience and a big-time Sunday brunch crowd brought to them via the Walker and Basilica. Dinner hits lots of high notes: Try the fried quail with pancetta and corn, bone marrow appetizer, steak frites with truffled fries, and our favorite, the "brick" chicken with apricot.
