East­side

Chef Jamie Malone re­launched Grand Cafe in Min­neapo­lis in 2018, earn­ing Dish of the Year lau­rels from Food & Wine for her Paris-Brest sweet-sa­vory pas­try and mak­ing the mag­a­zine’s Restau­rant of the Year short­list. For her fol­low-up act, Malone took over another ex­ist­ing restau­rant, East­side, and re­made it in her own de­lec­ta­ble, quirky style. The menu spe­cial­izes in large­for­mat dishes meant for shar­ing — “It takes the stress out of or­der­ing,” said Malone — like whole roast duck and, on the drinks side, Feuerzan­gen­bowle of Glogg made with red wine, port and spices and serv­ing four to eight peo­ple. “Our culi­nary con­cept at East­side is about food that is fun and lusty, cre­ated with skill and care, but not pre­cise,” added the chef. “We cook the food that we want to eat.” For sports fans, East­side is half a mile from U.S. Bank Sta­dium and has an ex­ten­sive bar menu with items like shishito pep­pers and fresh oys­ters.
