Up next on the Minnesota Bucket List is Hazelwood Food and Drink.
With three locations, Bloomington (pictured), St. Louis Park (pictured), and Tonka Bay.
Hazelwood is part of Nova Restaurant Group that also owns Tavern 4 & 5, Chesters Kitchen and Bar, Pescara, and Terza Ristorante – each of which are incredible.
So it is no surprise that when I went looking for a personal, intimate space to celebrate a few people in my life, I picked Hazelwood.
Warm, inviting, and fitting for any time of day or occasion, Hazelwood is top-notch. I can always be won over by beautiful plating and comforting flavor so I was more than happy with the menu.
Maybe you want homey with a touch of nostalgia? The pot roast Mac and cheese comes with Tillamook cheddar, mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, house braised beef, mirepoix, potato chip crust.
Sunkissed and Italian? Grab the Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella, vine-ripened tomatoes, and basil.
If you are in the mood for a saccharine delight, go out of your way to get the banana cream pie with fresh custard, walnut-almond crust, house whipped cream, Kahlua chocolate & caramel sauce, caramelized banana, so good!
Looking for something filling but sweet? The blackberry brie burger has brie cheese curds, blackberry jam, roasted jalapeños, candied bacon.
Wanting heavy with flavor? Try the grilled filet mignon with garlic butter, smoked gouda hash browns.
If you are looking for a place to host your next date night, or just looking for a brunch on Saturday morning, I highly recommend it!
