Are you in Minneapolis and hungry? 112 Eatery might be the place to go. The restaurant is headed by executive chef and owner Isaac Becker, who was the winner of the 2011 James Beard Best Chef: Midwest award. The eatery is a cozy, trendy place that’s good for having dinner. Late-night meals are possible, since the restaurant closes at midnight from Monday to Thursday and at 1 A.M. on Friday and Saturday. The kitchen keeps cooking right until the restaurant closes.
There is a good variety of appetizers to choose from. Start with the romaine leaves with Roquefort dressing, duck terrine and rabbit pate, or lamb scottadito with goat’s milk yogurt. The main course menu features unique options like the tagliatelle with foie gras meatballs and nori encrusted sirloin with ponzu. If you’re in the mood for adventurous meats, the frog legs or the veal tongue with cold soba noodles would satisfy.
End your meal with Nancy Silverton’s butterscotch budino, the banana cream éclair with caramélia glaze, or a tropical coconut lime panna cotta. This late-night dining establishment is not one to miss.
