Review of the new Harry's Mpls

faith | Jul 30, 2007 03:29 PM

I had to check out the new Harry's that Steven Brown is cooking for now. I had a Summer
Goddess salad which was excellent, which had a very nice creamy homemade green goddess dressing on a plateful of romaine chopped to a good size , and some avocado
sliced on top. For $9 or so, it was a nice size, filled up an entree plate. Loved their
house-made bread& butter pickles that come with every meal. And absolutely loved
the farro and beets dish that came from their creative list of vegetable sides. It had a
lovely buttery sauce that didn't overpower the rest of it. I asked for no extra salt and the
very friendly waitress wrote a note on the order to that effect, and nothing was salted!
Yay! I also appreciate that they don't give people bread, since I am watching the carbs
and am helpless when given a bread basket. I did look at their dessert menu and found
it to be kind of over the top with extreme desserts, including their chocolate banana cream
pie that sounds like it's more like a chocolate overload with a few bananas thrown in. The
bananas are roasted, which would add sweetness, not the best choice in my opinion. I
am a banana cream pie lover but I'd only want an accent of chocolate added to a good
banana cream pie , and definitely raw banana slices, or baked ones in the pie, not roasted
ones unless they were an accent on top or something. So , although I'm not thrilled with
their dessert menu I'm definitely recommending the place and going back to try more of
the menu, like the walleye sandwich. Loved the room as well, very nicely done with several
seating areas, very spacious place. They have a 'Wisconsin fish fry' on their menu on Fridays, which is apparently unlimited fried perch with french fries for $16 , for the fish fry hunters out there.
