The Lowbrow

Checked out the new neighborhood bar in the Kingfield area of Minneapolis yesterday, The Lowbrow. It's about 2 blocks from my daughter's daycare, so I was very excited to have a place to hang out if I arrive early for pickup....

Has anyone else been here? I perused the menu and just had an appetizer and a beer; I plan to return with wife and child sometime soon for an early post-daycare dinner, or possibly for their weekend brunch.

I had some chips and salsa and guacamole. Very impressive-- the chips are housemade, arrived hot and fresh with some nice big grains of salt. The salsa seemed to be very fresh and probably housemade too, and the guac likewise. The beer selection is fairly small, only 5 taps, but all local/regional and a good spread of styles: they had Grain Belt Premium, Summit Oatmeal Stout, Fulton Sweet Child, Rush River Amber, and Bell's Best Brown (the last one being a rotating Bell's seasonal, and also the only one from outside MN/WI).

The menu looks intriguing: all the meat is locally sourced (Thousand Hills beef, Fischer Farms pork, Larry Schultz chicken), a few of the entrees are a bit unusual for "bar food" (spaghetti and homemade meatballs), and the prices were (to me) astonishingly low-- $6.25 for a grassfed beef burger??

Some nice looking brunch selections too.....

If anyone has been here, or if you make it to a meal there before I do, chime in!
