Opening a informal sector-café-wine bar in Wayzata has been Lindsay Pohlad’s mission for additional than five years.
Soon after lining up permits and building out a new area, and with mounting anticipation amid eaters in the lakeside city, she planned to start this spring. Then COVID-19 shut everything down.
Pohlad utilized the pause to further hone her principle: The Grocer’s Table, she came to feel, could possibly characterize the most effective variety of cafe for the foreseeable future. As an all-working day counter-assistance spot, it’s created for breezy interactions and brief stops. Shoppers can pick up a wooden-fired pizza and carry it down to the lake or grab a thick English muffin breakfast sandwich on the way to get the job done. And she and government chef Craig Johnson have stocked it with domestically sourced grab-’n’-go merchandise from makers like Purple Table Meat Co. and Alemar Cheese.
The final result doesn’t sense like an ordinary sector run. From the grey wooden styling to the Intelligentsia coffee, The Grocer’s Table delivers that cafe expertise, even in the shortest of visits.
