Sandcastle at Lake Nokomis: The tour

Healthy options, beer and wine service, and a sustainable eco-friendly business model were all part of Sandcastle’s original proposal to the Minneapolis Parks Board, a plan that was met with great enthusiasm by residents of the oft-overlooked Nokomis area. Indeed, many of the dishes exceed expectations for the kind of fare you usually get from a concession stand. There’s shrimp and octopus ceviche with pico de gallo, salty tortilla chips, and plenty of lime that should be enjoyed almost as a very hearty dip, with the chips lending a touch of extra salt and textural contrast to the firm and acidic seafood.
