The owner of the B&B at which we were staying recommended this restaurant. My wife and I recently enjoyed two dinners at this amazing place.
The chef, Stephen Larson, has considerable experience and a sure hand, and it shows in the freshness of the ingredients, the extraordinary interplay of flavors and the visual creativity of the plating.
The second night we were there, we were fortunate to be offered a special, five-course, four-wine chef’s tasting menu. The menu consisted of a fennel, pear and roasted shallot soup, followed by steelhead (sea-run trout), a rabbit ragu, steak with heirloom potatoes and homemade steak sauce and, for dessert, a caramel flan with homemade caramel. All of it was superb.
The restaurant itself is decorated in white and light woods. The effect is sophisticated and inviting.
Oh, and the prices? We have eaten in a lot of restaurants in a lot of cities, and we consider our meals at QUARTER/quarter to be among the best value for money. This restaurant is worth a drive from Rochester, Lanesboro, even the Twin Cities.
(By the way, we have no connection whatsoever to this restaurant, its owner/chef, its waitstaff or its landlord.)
