Marin will be newest restaurant at Chambers hotel in downtown Minneapolis
Hoping this restaurant fits just right
The Goldilocks restaurant space at the base ofLe Méridien
hotel has had a bit of difficulty finding the perfect fit. First, nationally known chef Jean Georges Vongerichten came and went, then the D'Amicos tried their hand. Now we know the third restaurant that will move into the downtown Minneapolis hotel. Craig Bentdahl, owner of St. Louis Park's Mill Valley Kitchen, will be renovating the space and opening Marin.
Marin, named for Marin County, will expand on the philosophy of Mill Valley Kitchen, with its focus on Northern California cuisine. The dishes created by chef Michael Rakun will emphasize light, sustainable foods. This won't be Rakun's first experience with feeding hotel guests; his background includes a stint at the St. Paul Hotel.
