Hazel's Northeast

2859 Johnson St. NE Minneapolis, MN 55418 | Northeast Minneapolis | 612-788-4778

Location Description:

Brothers Andrew and Adam Sieve are the third-generation of a restaurant-owning family who named their first venture after their grandmother Helen, nicknamed Hazel. They've brought neighborhood-friendly dining back to the Johnson Street space vacated by the dearly departed Pop, a contemporary take on the small-town café. Their menu of comfort foods with modern twists reflects its intergenerational patrons, a mix of old-timers and young families. They call its formula "one part grandma, one part grandson." For grandma there's a turkey commercial and a remake of Pop's beloved Swedish meatballs. For grandson, there are deep-fried, cream cheese-stuffed olives, pork loin with green apple/ginger sauce, and banana French toast smothered in caramel.
