Bread and Pickle

Went to Bread & Pickle tonight at the Lake Harriet Bandshell--first time getting any food there. My dining companions were 3 and 1, so they got a hot dog, a grilled cheese, and some cheese curds. I got a mahi taco ($5). I wasn't impressed by any of it. It wasn't super busy, and I wonder if everything had been sitting around for a while, because nothing was particularly hot when we got it. The cheese curds had too much breading, and they also seemed overpriced at $7. The grilled cheese was very plain, and the kids seemed to be fine with it. My mahi taco ($5) was particularly disappointing. It must have been sitting around, because whatever sauce was on it had soaked through the two tortillas, and it fell apart before I was halfway finished. It was oversauced with whatever mayo-based condiment was on it, and whatever the fish was marinated in was too strong--I couldn't really discern any fish taste at all.

On the plus side, everything was compostable. And the lemonade was good, if a little sweet.

So far, Bread & Pickle is my least favorite of the park dining options in Minneapolis--Sea Salt and even Tin Fish are much better in quality and value. (At B&P tonight there was a nicoise salad on the menu--for $16.) This is really disappointing, since B&P is my closest option, and I love walking over for a concert on a nice summer night. I think I'm better off bringing my own food next time.
