I'll admit, I don't brunch often - but when I do - it has to be something I can't do at home in my pjs. Icehouse does a damn good brunch. Add it to your list!
Why? Scroll down and I'll list my reasons below.
But first, a quick intro. Executive Chef Matthew Bickford is a chef to know here in the Twin Cities. Every interaction I've had with him has been great. Personal highlight? While photographing my first wine dinner hosted by Icehouse + Solo Vino - the figs had been put on a shelf out of the way. Matt asked his kitchen crew where they were (perhaps not loud enough?) but, I was first to respond with the correct location. We had a nice little moment, maybe a fist bump(?) of sorts...and he was back at work.
Kitchens are hard to photograph in. Space can be tight - the stoves are hot -people are moving fast. But, this kitchen crew made it a really enjoyable experience. During this meal, I was mostly out in the dining area to take photos. I also have a chance to sit down at the table and enjoy the meal with friends and family.
*Special note* I highly recommend making this a group outing so you can share items. Trust me, you'll want to try it all. While the plates are quite beautiful and 'instagrammable' don't waste too much time snapping pics - you'll want to experience these perfect eggs in real time.

Don't forget the coffee... we started with it! I had to include this shot because duh, the cream mixing in with the coffee view through a clear mug is just too perfect. Great job pouring Mitch.
