From Barbette

Named “Best French Restaurant, populist vote” by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, Barbette is simply good food in a casual, eclectic, come in and make yourself comfortable atmosphere.  We call many local farmers friends and in addition to a wine list that will put you over the moon, we offer many gluten-free and vegetarian options.  We love it when you’re here. Come in.

Tasting menus are available upon request with prior notice, and if you have any special dietary needs we are happy to accommodate when possible. We serve grass-fed beef, free-range organic pork, free-range organic chicken and eggs, all locally sourced.  We pay close attention to the sourcing of our seafood.
