It’s been a few years since I wrote my last review of this fine dining establishment so I thought I would create a new, birthday version this time. When I made the reservation to celebrate my birthday at Hell’s Kitchen they asked if we would be celebrating something so I answered “birthday”. When we checked in the hostess noted that we were celebrating a birthday and seated us with a little something with “happy birthday” on our table. This was to alert the wait staff to offer a special gift. I didn’t know they offered anything special but our waitress gave me several options of items that were on the house as their way of saying happy birthday. Well, how nice! I decided on a house wine to have with dinner. Perfect!
I always get the same thing when I come here because it is absolutely wonderful! At Hell’s Kitchen they offer breakfast items all day and the huevos rancheros are to die for! Here is how they’re described on the menu: A crisp flour tortilla layered with buttery hashbrowns, spicy black beans, soft-scrambled eggs and a 3-cheese topping baked to a golden brown. Topped with hand-chopped salsa and a dollop of sour cream. You can add all sorts of things like guacamole, bacon or avocado but I think it’s perfect without anything extra. Both Miss M and myself had the huevos rancheros while hubby had their French dip: This isn’t a standard deli-sliced French dip sandwich. At Hell’s Kitchen, we slow-roast a prime rib for hours until it’s so tender, it falls apart with a fork. We’ll serve yours piled with mounds of thin slices on a grilled ciabatta bun with plenty of roasted garlic au jus for dipping. He doesn’t get the same thing every time like I do and he’s always enjoyed every meal we’ve had there. I’m including a few photos from the great time we had last night.
After dinner we walked across the street where the famous music mural resides on the side of the building of what used to be Schmitt Music’s headquarters. You might have seen the photo of Prince posing in front of it in the 70s, the same photo that is part of the place mats at Hell’s Kitchen in my gallery above. The music is by Ravel and according to Miss M, it’s the hardest piece to play on piano. I found another story online with more informaiton on the mural and it mentions this fact as well.
It was such a nice evening with great food and company. Once again, I highly recommend Hell’s Kitchen. And if you’re celebrating something, do mention it and get your freebie. They really treat you right here and I will continue to visit. Thanks Hell’s Kitchen for a wonderful birthday dinner!
I’ll leave you with a photo of downtown Minneapolis. Enjoy the weekend everyone!
