Owamni–What a gem and blessing to have in Minnesota!
Sometimes we feature a special eating experience instead of a recipe, and this is one of those occasions. Gretchen and I recently checked off an item on our bucket list by attending a 13 course tasting experience at the Owamni restaurant in Minneapolis, named the best new restaurant in the U.S. in a New Yorker headline. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2022/09/19/how-owamni-became-the-best-new-restaurant-in-the-united-states We were so absolutely mesmerized by the food that we forgot to take photos, which says a lot right there!!!! We delighted in a sumac/juniper/sage/maple syrup tea to start things off and then ate corn, squash, venison, bison, and other foods in presentations that can only be called works of art. We especially enjoyed the experience because we have eaten many of these things before, but never prepared as they were, in a fine dining establishment setting. We highly recommend trying out this wonderful place if you are interested in exploring new flavors, and some familiar ones prepared in new ways!!! We both give Owamni 5 stars!!!
