Just had my last meal at this pillar of fine dining on its last day. I've been enjoying the food, ambiance and neighborhood meeting place for more years than I would like to remember. It's been a place to enjoy a casual meal on the...More

I'd wanted to eat at Muffuletta for years and finally stopped on a recent rainy Saturday. Service was friendly without being cloying. I ordered a turkey burger. It was probably the BEST turkey burger I've ever had: juicy, well-seasoned, and served with fresh greens in...More

I've always had great meals here. They use fresh, local ingredients and keep it simple. $5 glass of wine not a bad price during happy hour, otherwise a fairly upscale place, not a budget cafe. Staff does let you eat in peace without asking questions...More

Been here many times, the food is always good, service great and the atmosphere is unique. Great location and the facility is actually larger than just the front seating area, there is a larger room in the back for big groups.

Description
"Chef Matt Ellison ... showcasing some of the best local farmers and letting their beautiful Midwestern products make his contemporary cooking arguments for him." Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl - The daily-printed menu, filled with irresistible flavors and tempting aromas, is truly a feast for the senses. The wine menu is hand- picked by the Sommelier and also changes to reflect the seasonal and ethnic influences of the cuisine. - Jeremy Iggers of the Minneapolis Star Tribune describes the restaurant as "a candle-lit chef-driven bistro with an imaginative globe-trotting menu."
