Imagine a roasted chicken that’s been brined for 24 hours and dried for a day. Imagine a roasted chicken so good that “it is rumored a local food writer and cookbook author was overheard saying she would never make roasted chicken at home again after tasting our[s],” according to owner Anne Spaeth. This meal is real, and it’s being served at The Lynhall in Minneapolis.

The Lynhall is set in the Lyn/Lake neighborhood of Minneapolis and characterized by modern Bohemian farmhouse décor. “I stressed to [our designer] that I wanted the feel of the restaurant to be one of entering a warm, comfortable home where delicious food can be served around a long, communal table,” says Spaeth. 

The farmhouse décor doesn’t hamper the updated A/V technology in the Linney Kitchen Studio, which features the first-of-its-kind Twin Cities TV Studio Kitchen. Up to 45 seated guests can attend corporate trainings, corporate team-building events, marketing presentations, company food shoots, surprise parties or chef presentations in the TV Studio Kitchen. Other spaces can be rented for breakfast, lunch, dinner or for full or partial days. 

When Minneapolis won the bid to host Super Bowl LII back in May 2014, the city and its people got to work. By the time the Eagles defeated the Patriots on Feb. 4, 2018, in front of a crowd of 67,612, more than 150 Super Bowl-related parties and events took place, 1,055,000 people attended the 10-day fan festival and 1.4 million people visited the Mall of America. The next day, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport waved good-bye to a record-breaking 61,000 visitors, and the people who worked tirelessly to pull off the event breathed a collective sigh of relief.

 

You don't have to spend a fortune on a corporate outing to make a big impact. Texas-based Small Giants Community founder Paul Spiegelman’s corporate picnic at the Lonesome Dove Ranch was so inspiring, he wrote an article about it for Inc.com. “Oftentimes, employee perks are the fi rst cuts to improve margins,” Spiegelman writes. “Don’t do it. Here’s why.”
