MSP: New Chef At Barbette

GastronautMN | Dec 2, 2007 05:34 PM

I had dinner at Barbette last night for the first time and our server said they had a new chef. It appears Landon Schoenfeld aka "Colonel Mustard" is out. I was told his replacement comes from Spoonriver/Cafe Brenda and had also been at Levain v. 1.0.

The food we had was all classically prepared and great:

Cheese Fondue and half a dozen oysters. Wonderful braised shortribs and Steak au Poive with haricot verts. A fine panna cotta.

I also sampled the Alexis Bailley port which was really tasty.

I have no reference point to say whether the there has been a change of quality but my wife and I both thought we will make a point of trying to go back.

Anyone hear where Schoendfeld has landed? or who his replacement is?
