Bacon Fest at Citizen Cafe

Bacon Fest Tues., April 28 to Sun., May 10 Citizen Cafe 2403 East 38th Street, Mpls. 612.729.1122

We here at Hot Dish realize that bacon has gotten some overexposure lately, but we also think that bacon is worthy of the hype. Especially the fresh, locally produced, small farm variety.

At Citizen Cafe, the "cafe for the people," chef Michael MacKay (formerly of The Sample Room) goes bonkers-for-bacon at Bacon Fest-- a two week celebration of all things, you guessed it-- bacon. Savory delights include parsnip puree soup with bacon apple salsa, bacon saki-mary, and the oh-so-intriguing candied maple bacon creme brulee. Bacon-erific!
