Minneapolis, December 6, 2016— Esker Grove, Chef Doug Flicker’s new restaurant at the Walker Art Center, opens Tuesday, December 13, for lunch and dinner. A contemporary and casual restaurant, Esker Grove is sure to become a favorite destination in Minneapolis for lunch, dinner, and beginning January 7, Saturday and Sunday brunch. The menu offers seasonal, organically motivated dishes created by Chef Doug Flicker of Sandcastle and Piccolo that are inspired by local farmers’ harvests and regional cheese artisans and protein purveyors.
Esker Grove will feature a modern, but unfussy, approach to vegetable and grain-focused cooking using classic techniques. The restaurant will offer craft beer, crafted cocktails, and a tightly focused coffee menu featuring Spyhouse roasted coffee.
Flicker’s team at Esker Grove includes key talents from the Twin Cities restaurant industry; Mixologist Jon Olson, Chef de Cuisine T.J. Rawitzer, and General Manager Kim Tong.
Reservations to Esker Grove can be made at Open Table
