Rix Bar & Grill
We tried a new restaurant today. It was my mothers birthday a couple of days ago and we went out for lunch. We chose Rix Bar & Grill in north Minneapolis. Rix is fairly new, replacing what I hear was a fairly rundown bar that used to be there.
The restaurant was non-assuming and relaxed. Open kitchen, nice bar area and a medium size dining room. We had a really nice experience and great food, I would recommend others to give it a try.
The sweet potato french fries are a must. I love sweet potatoes, and these were just stunning. The chipotle dipping sauce is great as well. I also give the green bean appetizer high marks.
I had the huevos rancheros, which is only available on Sunday. It was very good, with plenty of kick.
The deserts were tasty, however if you order the rhubarb tart make sure to get ice cream with it. It’s a big mistake that they don’t serve it by default that way.
Update: We’ve been to Rix a couple of times since that initial visit and it continues to be a great, neighborhood stop. Give it a go!
