First visit to Diane’s Place

Posted May 9, 2024

Colleen and I ventured to Northeast Minneapolis last month for Sunday brunch at Diane Moua’s new restaurant, Diane’s Place. Our 1:00pm reservation got us there just in time to order the last of the almond croissants (and a wonderful pain au chocolat for me) from the counter in front before our table was ready.

We have been a huge fan of Chef Diane during her time with the Soigné Hospitality Group and have really been looking forward to the opening of her own place. We were also excited to see Heather Ann Mady from Mucci’s in the GM role and were super surprised to see Chef Chris helping out in the kitchen during our visit.

Located at 117 14th Avenue NE in the Food Building, the room was relatively small, but lively and full of positive energy. They are currently open daily from 8:00am – 2:30pm for breakfast and lunch, with dinner “soon to come.” There is also a private event space, but we didn’t get to see that area on our visit. Reservations are via Resy and can be found here. Plenty of free street parking nearby, but you might need to walk a little.

We started with the MAKERS’ BOARD (daily selection of meats and cheeses from Lowry Hill Provisions, Alemar Cheese and Baker’s Field Flour toast, accoutrements), followed by the SWEET PORK BOWL (steamed rice, brown sugar marinated egg, pickled mustard greens) for Colleen and DIANE’S HMONG SAUSAGE (sticky rice, sweet & sour and over easy egg) for me.

I ordered the Gardens of Garibaldi cocktail (fresh oj, negroni bitters, clementine, jasmine) and had a shot called the Honey & Cream (Red Locks, egg, cream, honey). For dessert, Colleen ordered the Tropical Sundae (coconut panna cotta, pineapple, guava sorbet & mango), while I had the Five Spice Chocolate Mousse with malted milk chocolate ice cream. Classic Diane.

And we see you, Bill Summerville, with the Madeira menu item – very fun…

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
