OK, we admit, Brad probably hasn’t said that. We don’t know. We’d like to believe he has. So if our risotto loving Brad Pitt stopped into the Twin Cities, where would he go? Barbette of course, in Uptown.
Grab the risotto for dinner. It’s good, in both rock shrimp and spring vegetable versions.
Not feeling risotto? Not sure what risotto is? They have fantastic steak frites, which we recommend spending a little extra to take the new york strip version over the flat iron.
Dinner here is great. Options in a whirlwind of delicious varieties. But we’d also encourage you to stop in for their late night happy hour where you can get pomme frites with saffron aioli, pate, brie and a baguette, or three oysters all for the wonderful price of $5 each. And you can get these deals every single day of the week.
Barbette also believes in the wonder of spontaneity and purposely leaves tables open for walk-ins when they can. So when the mood strikes you, you can head over to this place, voted “Best French Restaurant” by MSPMag, and eat frites until you can’t eat any more.
Even though Brad Pitt won’t be there, you should still go. It’s good. Trust us.
