We’ve been on a quest lately to break out of our restaurant routine and try new spots. Especially those that highlight local and sustainable food. Last night’s experiment required a 25 mile drive to Minneapolis’ North Side, near Husband’s old stomping grounds.
What I like about most of these restaurants we’ve tried – Victory 44 included, is that while they take their food seriously, they don’t take themselves too seriously. In other words, the restaurant isn’t pretentious at all. If you’re a foodie, you’ll love it. If you wander in off the street for a bump and a burger, you’ll love it. And both are welcome.
We nabbed a high-top table by the front windows, with a great view of the open kitchen. A blackboard on the wall behind us listed the day’s menu items, which were pondered over a tasty adult beverage.
