Icehouse

2528 Nicollet Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55404 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-276-6523

Location Description:

The concept behind the new Icehouse was to create a fun-for-all restaurant and music venue on Eat Street, with a chef-driven menu of imaginative, elevated small plates. And they have pulled that off quite well. Small plates are the focus for late night and dinner, with dishes like gulf shrimp in a pesto-tinged broth, an adult mac and cheese, house-made charcuterie and deli meats (a co-owner came from Be'wiched), and, at brunch, a savory eclair that shouldn't be missed, made with maple-brushed pork belly and smoky cheddar cheese sauce. The drinks program was designed by bartender extraordinaire Johnny Michaels. Put this on your short list for an awesome first-date spot.
