Some of Seward’s best food destinations got a major shout-out this afternoon on MPR when host Steven John talked with James Norton from the Heavy Table about local hot spots.
Norton on Tracy’s Saloon:
“…you can get a burger and a beer, or you can get a really excellent house curry on lemon rice. It’s fast becoming one of my favorite chill-out restaurants in Minneapolis.”
On Birchwood Cafe:
He also mentioned Birchwood’s upcoming Kickstarter campaign for $100,000 to expand its kitchen, add a rain garden and solar panel array, expand the dining room, and possibly add a vestibule entryway. The campaign kick-off will happen this Sunday from 5-9 p.m. and will include local beer, local food, and local farmers.
On the Seward Co-op:
“They’ve been booming…. The co-op’s new location has been exceeding its own revenue projections since opening its doors in early 2009….”
On Verdant Tea:
When asked what the future is for dining in Seward, Norton mentioned Verdant Tea. He commented:
“It’s less a tea house than a flavor laboratory…. It’s one thing to have a clever idea, but quite another to follow through, and they’re doing both.”
