March 2015. I went to TRAVAIL KITCHEN & AMUSEMENTS in Robbinsdale, Minnesota with my best friend Carrie. It was her birthday gift to me! It was the most amazing dinner of my life. The chef's tasting menu was 22 courses. The style of the restaurant blends playfulness, seasonality of ingredients, molecular gastronomy and upscale cuisine in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. One of our courses was served on a rock. Another was served on a fish hook. Another in a test tube and another took you through their open style kitchen going from station to station using liquid nitrogen to create your dessert. We were amazed with the inventive and amusing presentation of each course. We enjoyed homemade gnocchi, fluke, brisket, lobster bisque, squid ink ravioli, bellini with caviar, curry and many, many other incredible dishes. It was spectacular and I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates remarkable food and exceptional presentation. There just aren't enough adjectives to describe this ultimate foodie experience. I will never forget it!
