Food & Drink
The holiday season is ripe for entertaining, and these two Maple Grove spots offer unique items that put a new spin on the holiday meal while leaving a lasting impression on your guests.
Maple Grove residents are by no means deprived of options when it comes to food...and the types of foods being offered around town are certainly shifting. Many families are now taking part in the healthy-foods and shopping-in-the-organic-aisle crazes.
Although Maple Grove doesn’t have its own craft brewery, you can still experience the great local brews Minnesota has to offer. Here, we’ve mapped out a brew hop of six bars in Maple Grove with local beers on tap for your sipping pleasure.
Eating out involves more than food these days: the dining experience has grown into an interactive activity that builds community, and trivia nights have hit Maple Grove by storm. Many restaurants, bars, pubs or taverns feature some kind of trivia contest event.
Philadelphia created the Philly Cheese Steak. The South is known for their smoky barbecue chicken and pork sandwiches. Omaha claims ownership of the Reuben. But in Maple Grove? Subs piled high with meat, cheese and veggies seem to be the most popular sandwich candidate.
Our appetites are in thrall to the aesthetic. An artfully decked out hamburger arranged on a nice plate is much more appealing than a beef and bun haphazardly thrown together, no matter the taste.
Admit it, we’re all ready for a little sunshine. Add to that a glass of crisp white wine, a scrumptious summer salad and an enchanting atmosphere and you’ll feel those wet mornings and mid-week blizzards slowly fade to distant memories.
