Heartland begins serving brunch this weekend!
Exciting news from chef Lenny Russo: starting this Saturday, June 18, Heartland will be serving weekend brunch. Former Heartland chef de cuisine Robb Moore, who left to open the now-shuttered Cru in Blaine, collaborated on the menu with Russo and will head up the brunch service.
If you work up an appetite shopping at the St. Paul Farmers' Market across the street, you can now refuel with poached duck egg, house-cured ham, tomato, challah toast, and chive hollandaise sauce, or challah French toast with preserved cherry butter. For those who like their brunch from the lunchier side of things there's a fried egg-topped, grass-feed beef "breakfast" burger and grass-fed beef tenderloin steak and eggs.
Heartland is known for sourcing premium local ingredients so I've got high hopes for the breakfast sausage and bacon--though the sides are the priciest I've seen at $10 apiece.
