Sunday’s Site – Spill the Wine Restaurant, Minneapolis

NOTE: see the bottom of Sunday's Site posts for homes for sale in the area

Spillthewine2 Spill the Wine is one of those restaurants where the setting also plays a role in the experience. It is located in a historic building which was the home of Frank's Plumbing for many years. In fact, when we recently had dinner there with friends they talked about the many hours they had spent in the same space searching for antique plumbing fixtures. I love the way they creatively re-designed and re-used the big sign that used to grace the side of the building as a canopy over the bar.


As the name suggests, Spill the Wine has an extensive wine list…Spillthewine-flight1 longer than the menu. They also offer wine flights, which can be fun… as well as a Wine-of-the-Month Club

It was a busy Friday night when we were recently there… we were glad we had reservations. My husband and I split the surf and turf with tenderloin and scallops, both of which were delicious…as was the poached pear salad, calamari appetizer and jumbo brownie the whole table shared for dessert.

I mentioned Spill the Wine in my first Sunday's Site post on Gold Medal Park, way back in April 2008. The park is next to the Guthrie Theater along the riverfront and just a short walk from the restaurant, in an area that is the site of many new condo developments and warehouse loft conversions. It is nice to see buildings start to grow again on empty sites where projects had been on hold for a couple years… good to see more visible signs of recovery.
