Minneapolis' newest restaurant opened Monday, Feb. 18, promising gourmet burgers and a wide selection of wines by the glass.
The Red Cow, located in the former Blockbuster storefront at 50th and France, will serve lunch, dinner, and late-night fare until 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and until midnight on Sundays.
Wine list is quite long, ringing in at 30-plus different reds and whites and a few kinds of bubbly to boot. Most on the list are available by the glass, with a few more available by the bottle. Beer lovers won't feel left out, either, with around 40 taps on offer, around half of which are from Minnesota or Wisconsin.
The menu is burger- and sandwich-heavy, with a small selection of other entrees, house-made soups, and entree-size salads. Prices are reasonable, running from around $9 to $13. Diners and drinkers will also find a sizeable smorgasbord of small starters to snack on, like poutine ($9.50), ahi tuna crisps ($11), and pastrami sliders ($10). CityPages' food critic stopped by earlier this week to sample some of their fare.
While it won't be too useful for a few more months, the restaurant also boasts a 34-seat patio.
