The culinary hits in Minneapolis's North Loop neighborhood just keep coming with Borough and Parlour, a joint effort by Travail alums Tyler Shipton and Nick O'Leary. Borough is the kind of restaurant you really want to make time for. Start early with a visit to Borough's lower-level bar, Parlour, for a cheekily named craft cocktail. Then head upstairs to the restaurant, where you'll find a smart menu full of varying sizes of equally artful plates. Some of the starter-sized items included a creamy, potato-based soup finished with champagne and poured over (at the table) fingerling potato chips, chives, and ribbons of truffles shaved right onto the side of the bowl. A spin on a traditional fried chicken dinner took the form of a sort of chicken roulade, filled with smoky chicken liver and rolled in crispy breadcrumbs. It was served with braised mustard greens, a gently cooked egg, mashed potatoes, and watermelon radishes--smart, sophisticated, and quite delicious. PHOTOS BY EU PHOTOGRAPHY.
