    POSTED May 28, 2019

Café and Bar Lurcat is introducing new fare to its already bountiful menu. The D'Amico & Partners restaurant is welcoming new flavors from octopus and tuna to steak and farrotto that offer something for everyone's taste buds. Here's a look at their new (and some old) menu items.

Foie gras panna cotta, crab cakes, seafood tower crudité and caviar

These appetizers are great for a social hour or corporate meeting. The foie gras panna cotta is flavored with strawberry, pine nut granola and saba, offering a fruity addition to the savory seafood display.

Octopus tonnato and scallops bourguignonne

Paired with Chablis Premier Cru, these dishes offer lighter fare for those who aren't very hungry (or are saving room for dessert). The octopus tonnato is served with crispy potatoes and arugula, and the scallops bourguignonne are topped with seasoned bread crumbs and parsley butter.

Seared ahi tuna and vegetarian farrotto

Whether you're a vegetarian, a pescetarian or a full-blown carnivore, the seared ahi tuna and vegetarian farrotto will have your mouth watering. Served with Nuits-Saint-Georges wine, the seared ahi tuna is a preserved tuna with olive and tomato. The farratto is a mix of seasonal vegetables.

Filet mignon and Snake River Farms Gold Bottom Sirloin

Paired with cabernet sauvignon, the filet mignon and Snake River Farms Gold Bottom Sirloin offer a hearty and delicious meal. The filet mignon is served with potato pavé and red wine syrup, and the Snake River Farms Gold Bottom Sirloin is smothered in a porcini rub and served with bone marrow and mushroom reduction.

Cinnamon sugar doughnuts and labneh custard cream

For an American classic, dig into a pile of Lurcat's signature cinnamon sugar mini donuts. Looking for a more adventurous end to your meal? Try the labneh custard cream served with pistachio fairy floss, sumac and kataifi.

It had been more than 50 years since the shores of Lake Minnetonka have seen a hotel when downtown Wayzata decided it was ready to change that. The 92-room Hotel Landing has proven to be a popular destination for brides- and grooms-to-be, business travelers, high-end diners, and company parties. From its 4,200 square feet of meeting space to its Nordic-inspired spa, Hotel Landing is a Wayzata oasis for locals and out-of-towners alike.


When it comes to apples, Minnesota knows its stuff. Home of the Honeycrisp, Minnesota proudly boasted its apple knowledge at the Minnesota Cider Guild's 6th annual Minnesota Cider Fest on Saturday, June 8. With more than 30 local, national and international cideries, the Minnesota Cider Fest offered samples of endless flavors of cider, and for the cider connoisseur, education sessions to test your apple knowledge.
