Grecco's on the Saint Croix - Closed

115 N. Washington St. St. Croix Falls, MN 54024 | Wisconsin | 715-483-5003

Location Description:

Chef Justin Grecco, who opened the now-shuttered Bellanotte several years ago, has his own place, Grecco's on the St. Croix, just across the river from Taylors Falls. The divvied-up space, which includes three small dining rooms, a bar, and a river-overlooking back patio, resembles a pack rat's estate sale, decorated, as it is, with a vintage, French-style wall clock, an overbearing silk flower arrangement, an African mask, a statue of Buddha, and a bas-relief profile of a woman's face above a fireplace. And that's just in one room. The menu at Grecco's is more ambitious than you'd expect for a small town whose Main Street can be walked from one end to the other in maybe three minutes flat. Several of the dishes come from a cultural melting pot as eclectic as the decor, including the likes of rabbit confit with Israeli cous cous and a lavender-honey glace. If you can't decide what to order, the tasting menus tend to simplify things and offer good value.
