Food & Drink

The patio at Tavern23 in Edina.

Tavern 23, Harriet Brasserie, Ciao Bella, Salut and Red Cow are some of the prettiest places to eat, drink and be merry this summer.

The Edina community celebrates the patio dining season in style. Dining alfresco is an experience to be savored, and if someone else does the cooking, all the better.

We chatted with three prominent Edinans, all members of our editorial advisory board, and asked about how they entertain during this fleeting, beautiful time of year. Their responses show that finding your own style is just as attainable.

Amy Trushenski (formerly Danielson) of Edina Grill, voted this year’s best bartender by readers of Edina Magazine, was recently married. She might have a new last name, but her great instinct for making delicious drinks remains unchanged.

Mindful eating extends beyond the plate to the original source—where and how food is grown. Sustainable-food aficionados tout the advantages: a smaller carbon footprint, less waste, better taste and environmental preservation.

A snack. A dish. An entire meal. Every epicurean event is elevated when it’s created with fresh, locally grown ingredients. The Centennial Lakes Farmers Market has more than 30 vendors, offering fresh produce, jams and jellies, and other tasty delicacies.

Make mom’s day with a night out. You don’t need to wait until Mother’s Day. She deserves it anytime. With so many fantastic choices here in Edina, the only difficult part is deciding where to go.
