Red Cow now open near 50th and France: Here's a first look inside
Red Cow is ready for business
The site was once a video rental store, but it's set to be neighborhood hangout at the Minneapolis edge of Edina. The new Red Cow restaurant has been beautifully redone with buttery cream-colored walls mixed with cherry-red booths and dark wood accents. The owner, Luke Shimp, knows a thing or three about the restaurant business.
Shimp was once part of the Blue Plate Restaurant company with his sister Stephanie Shimp and David Burley. The company owns and operates the nearby Edina Grill, the Lowry, and more.
Scotch eggs are all the rage
It's also got Scotch eggs, which are to 2013 what poutine was to 2012. The highly flavorful banger-style sausage is wrapped around hard-boiled eggs, fried, and served with a spiked mayonnaise.
