Bon Appetit nominates the Bachelor Farmer as one of America's best new restaurants
The Bachelor Farmer's first birthday party Saturday was a crawdad feast
Saturday afternoon a warm breeze graced attendees at the Bachelor Farmer's kravfskiva, a Scandinavian crawfish bash. Guests wore their yellow party hats akimbo as the Dayton brothers circulated through the crowd. There was a lot to celebrate. In their first year, their restaurant has been graced with four stars, a New York Times write-up, and attention from Food & Wine. Now Bon Appetit has added another accolade to the list and nominated them as one of America's 50 Best New Restaurants.
Happy Birthday, Bachelor Farmer!
Eric Dayton : As for next year, nothing big to announce at the moment. We're still a young restaurant, and we want to keep getting better at what we're already doing now, so that's our main focus.One fun thing to note is that on Friday, Paul and I are leaving for a 10-day trip to New York, Copenhagen, and Stockholm. We'll be visiting a bunch of amazing restaurants and just generally gathering ideas. It'll be fun to see how that experience inspires the menu in the coming months.
So, you heard it here first: First the Bachelor Farmer brought national press to Minneapolis, next they'll be bringing us the world.
