Minneapolis Restaurants that Support Local Farmers

Red Stag-
Sustainable, organic, and local. The Red Stag Supper Club is a great neighborhood joint new to Northeast Minneapolis with a menu created by Chef William Baskin formerly of Cosmos Minneapolis focusing on fresh and seasonal products. As the first LEED-Certified restaurant in Minneapolis, the Red Stag is a new concept blending health (both personal and environmental) and lifestyle into one incredible place to eat. http://www.redstagsupperclub.com/

Serving the finest gourmet natural cuisine, Spoonriver, is the logical evolution of its accomplished owner, Brenda Langton, who has been committed to locally produced products and healthy eating for decades. Spoonriver is the chic sister of Langton's Cafe Brenda, an award-winning Twin Cities institution that was far ahead of the curve in serving organic, and vegetarian cuisine when it opened in 1986. Spoonriver is just across the plaza from the Guthire Theatre. http://www.spoonriverrestaurant.com/

The Craftsman Restaurant and Bar-
The Craftsman serves regional New American cuisine. We purchase most of our products from local growers and producers.We use organic and chemical free produce, meat, and fish. "Most of the food products we use are produced locally by independent growers and producers. The Craftsman is selective about the quality and nutritional value of the food we serve." http://www.craftsmanrestaurant.com/

Corner Table-
"Our food is a reflection of the local agriculture in the Upper Midwest. Corner Table sources as much as possible of our meat and produce from small family farms in and around the state of Minnesota." http://www.cornertablerestaurant.com/home.htm
