A nondescript but well though out restaurant tucked away in the back of G gate in MSP is redefining what you can order in an airport. Seared Fois? Check. Bi-coastal oyster selection? Check. It's set around iPads and easy credit card options like any other modern airport landing pad. Most importantly, on top of that, they deliver.
A knowledgeable and helpful staff who all knew the food and made solid recommendations. They also struck me as a group that worked as a team - each had told the other what I needed.
A legit Manhattan with at least seven whiskies to choose from on the menu/iPad. A very reputable wine list where I may have made the only mistake of the meal - the 2013 Annabelle Pinot isn't ready for prime time.
The baguette was freshly baked and delicious in a way that many restaurants should take notice. A lightly cooked asparagus salad in a bright bacon lemon dressing with caramelized bacons was the perfect match for the Manhattan.
The main course was a stuffed quail that really shows the abilities of the kitchen. Crispy skin, moist dark meat and a deep pan sauce with bright microgreens on "celeriac" purée made for a great entre'.
Go big or go home, I finished with a tremendous sidecar and the flourless chocolate cake with berries, both well above average and light years beyond to-order food in most airport settings. (Even Denver, Elway be concerned)
The ordering system may have mystified me but the food was a refreshing towards a brighter future where travel doesn't have to be a chore. Thanks for a great meal!
