Dining: Upton 43

Last week in Minneapolis, our friend Marina invited us to dine at her work. I didn’t know where we were going until we arrived, enchanted by the stark Scandi + Japanese inspired design. From the handmade cutlery trays, to the gusto with which each dish arrived, the details were perfectly executed.

My boyfriend grew up here, and whenever we visit, I always try to catch up to him and his childhood buddies in drinking. Feeling a little hung over from the night before, I decided to opt for non alcoholic offerings, and was happy to discover that they had a few specially infused drinking vinegars on the menu.

pretty presentation

magical gravlax

the amuse bouche of my dreams, a grilled peach with nut crumb cracker and I honestly don’t know what else…

hay roasted pork chop

caesar salad with foam

salmon and beets many ways

a handsome Scandinavian styled interior

Everything colorful and delicious, these pickles rested on a bed of elderflower sorbet!

I loved the entire experience, and will for sure return again next time we visit.
