Birthday Dinner at Sea Change

Saturday, July 12th, 2014 12:58 am GMT -5

This post is super late (we visited Sea Change for Colleen’s birthday almost a month ago), but I’ve been focused on things other than writing blog posts that take longer than two minutes to write. Oh well, now that I’m getting Lapzilla back into production mode, there should be a whole plethora of posts coming soon…

Not sure why it took us so long to hit this restaurant. Executive Chef Tim McKee (2009 James Beard Award). Chef de Cuisine Jamie Malone (one of Food & Wine’s 2013 Best New Chef award winners). Beautiful location at the “new” Guthrie. What’s not to like? Perhaps it was just that seafood isn’t really at the top of my food category list (although I generally like a lot of fish). And City Pages says if you want seafood in Minneapolis, Sea Change is the place to go.

Plus how can you not like someone who wrote a post for Esquire entitled Penis or Vagina: Which is the better kitchen tool? The Bachelor Farmer’s Paul Berglund named Malone one of the top five most impressive Twin Cities chefs. And she convinced fiancee Erik Anderson to leave Nashville’s Catbird Seat and return to Minnesota.

Kick ass.
