112 Eatery

Since we’ve been back from South Dakota, we went to dinner with Dan Zelle and his family at the unique 112 Eatery in St Paul. When he made the reservation for us, Dan said we were in for a treat. And boy was he right. This restaurant was opened by a chef for chefs. After a long, hard night at work, this is where the chefs and kitchen staff come to eat and socialize. 112 Eatery is open with a full menu until 1 AM. Perfect hours for the hungry night owls who’ve just gotten out of work. The menu ranges from simple salads and egg sandwiches to foie gras and sweetbreads. We ordered just about one of everything and passed the dishes around family style. Much better than having to decide! I chickened out on trying the sweetbreads, but everything else was wonderful. Foie gras/lardon salad, crostini w/ white anchovy and avocado, lamb scottadito with goats milk yogurt, tempura prawns with rooster mayo, sautéed sweetbreads with porcini & clam sauce, tagliatelle w/ foie gras meatballs, Chinese fried eggs, cold cuts and house made pickles (we probably ordered more) and delicious desserts to top it all off. We’ve been talking about this meal all week long. Food by chefs for chefs. This would make a great spot for an internship site. www.112eatery.com
