Summer is here!

First weekend of June is here and the Traditions crew made the most of a summer weekend.

Good food, great friends, and a little wine are the perfect recipe for a summer evening. In Naples, dinner al fresco is the way to go.

 

Rhubarb Festival! 

Who knew Wisconsin had a festival exclusively devoted to rhubarb? Mark your calendars for next June. Nothing says summer like a great rhubarb crisp. See one of our favorite recipes below.

 

 

Edina Art Fair! 

For those who stayed in the Twin Cities, the Edina Art Fair was packed with great local artists, food and shopping.

The Lynhall

Our fourth dinner was deliciously simple. The Lynhall is warm and inviting, which is especially surprising for such a large and open space. Each staff member was more welcoming than the next. It’s a fun new concept that definitely impressed.

The Lynhall has mastered the art of the community table as well as family-style cuisine. Rotisserie chicken at its finest, braised short ribs that melt in your mouth. The side red potatoes are what dreams are made of. Every crispy bite had me craving more. Every flavor – from the chicken and potatoes to the collard greens – perfectly complemented one another. The rolls were served warm with melted butter and minced garlic on top. To say they were divine would be an understatement.

The atmosphere was jovial and lively. Families gathering, friends catching up, business meetings running late into the evening. Each table was filled with a mixture of activities. The diverse use of the space was refreshing and different.

In short, we cannot wait to go back!

“Wisdom not silver; knowledge rather than gold”

Aside from furniture and turning houses into beautiful homes, something we are fond of is testing out the new food spots in town! Now, we aren’t trained critics here, but we like good food and praising it! Last week we had the pleasure of trying The Lynhall. Located on Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis, we were excited to visit the new locale after reading the fantastic articles and wanted to show support to our fellow Design District member, Ciel Loft & Home, who furnished the interior. Our reviews are in……drumroll……we loved it!

  Upon entering the newly opened restaurant, you are immediately greeted by the friendly staff. What seemed to be a team mentality for success allowed for prompt service and inclusion in the fun, new concept.

 

Referred to as the Culinary Community, The Lynhall offers a vast assortment ranging from exceptional coffee and perfected cocktails to delectable delights. We enjoyed sweet and savory pastries and had dreams about the brioche French toast that night. The array of offerings is as fun as the decor, and all together, it made for a charming experience!

“We are a collective of passionate educators, chefs, bakers, craftspeople, storytellers and entrepreneurs. We believe in the importance of food and its power of strengthening families, friends and communities. At The Lynhall, we entertain, engage and invite people in as we celebrate taste, teaching and togetherness.”

“At The Lynhall, we continuously strive to create a space which inspires our employees, customers, and makers to gather around great food experiences.”

We are excited to have this new concept in our neighborhood and foresee more visits in the near future. Until then, a lesson to keep in mind a la The Lynhall:

Eat
Drink
Gather
Grow
