Boneyard features Chef Jason Bush's take on good ol' homestyle southern chicken. The two story matte black exterior gives way to comfort food inside with a rustic and modern interior featuring stressed wood lines many of the walls and there is even a large display of antique skillets. Expect unique takes on classics like mac and cheese, chicken and waffles, and even a meatloaf that makes use not of ground beef but duck.
The gastropub rocking a chalkboard menu oft-scrawled with duck, quail, and rabbit (all of which's perpetually served by the chefs themselves) serves up a rotating selection of adventurous eats in Robbinsdale.
The Freehouse stands behind their home-crafted beer, and it's clear why they are so confident: The No. 7 Hoppy Amber delivers a weighty but still pleasant citrus and hops finish. For eats, try the Caramelized Thai Pork for a melt-in-your-mouth entree served up with asian slaw and pickled cucumbers.
Kyatchi lives to serve Japanese-style cuisine with an American twist. The Minneapolis sushi hotspot dishes out soups, salads, small plates, grilled fish and seafood, meat skewers, rice, noodles, and, in a true cultural mélange, hot dogs. If you’re intrigued, good; hot dogs, like the kimchi dog with mustard, sesame oil, and Japanese mayo, all come with Japanese potato salad, whose savory flavor gives any typical ballpark frank a run for its money. If it’s more traditional cuisine you’re craving, try veggie or pork ramen, or scallop yuzu kosho, with raw scallops, veggies, chili pepper, yuzu peel, and sea salt. Kyatchi emphasizes sustainable ingredients and delivers them to you in a casual, open dining space decorated with Japanese artwork.
La Fresca lives up to its name's promise of fresh eats. Each dish is intricately constructed; these are not your every day tacos. The ceviche in particular pulls out all the stops with snapper, yellow tomatoes, and jicama.
