Butcher & the Boar

Min­neapo­lis, Min­nesota

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - Love Handles -

No mat­ter where you look on the menu, you’ll find thought­ful and tempt­ing of­fer­ings. Par­ings are cel­e­brated but not forced, and it’s a restau­rant that is just right for that next spe­cial oc­ca­sion.

What it is:

Butcher & the Boar is a cel­e­bra­tion of meat, great beer, and com­radery. With a menu that is de­signed for ta­ble shar­ing as well as a per­sonal din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, this well-known and well-loved restau­rant in down­town Min­neapo­lis is near the top of ev­ery lo­cal beer lover’s list for out-of-town­ers. The beer list is bro­ken down with broad strokes and is a mix of lo­cal, na­tional, and in­ter­na­tional of­fer­ings. The wine list is worth a look, and if you’re tak­ing the next day off from work, don’t pass up the cock­tails.

Why it’s great:

A lot of restau­rants call them­selves a steak house. It doesn’t al­ways mean that you get the full ex­pe­ri­ence. Here, you do—from the choice cuts, hand se­lected from lo­cal farms, to the deca­dent sides built for shar­ing and the at­ten­tive ser­vice that knows ev­ery an­gle of the menu and can of­fer ex­pert pair­ing sug­ges­tions. It can cer­tainly ding the wal­let, de­pend­ing on how deep you go, but know­ing that go­ing in should lead to sat­is­fac­tion at the end of the night. Oh, and did you like that sausage on the sam­pler plat­ter? You can buy some to take home. —John Holl DE­TAILS Hours: 5 p.m.–1 a.m., Mon­day–thurs­day; 5 p.m.–2 a.m., Fri­day–satur­day; 5 p.m.–mid­night, Sun­day Ad­dress: 1121 Hen­nepin Ave., Min­neapo­lis, MN Web: butcherandthe­boar.com
