Boneyard - New Restaurant Review

My foodie friend shared information with me that a new restaurant was opening up in Uptown Minneapolis in what used to be Old Chicago on Hennepin. Invitations were sent to a few people for a sneak peak preview for the restaurant to a test run for their staff to be prepared for the official open date, March 7th. Reservations had to be made beforehand and is on a first come first serve basis.

I got myself and a few coworkers in during the afternoon to try out their lunch.

The place was sexy, rustic and modern and had Southern based cuisine.

Below are some of the dishes we tried:

Fried Mac and Cheese Bites and Cornbread

Mama Mo's Fried Chicken on the left

Shrimp and Gritts

 

Apple Pie


The cornbread was AH-MAZING!!! The fried chicken was decently flavored. I wasn't amazed by it and the heat of the food was lacking, most likely because this is the mid-west and they wanted to turn that done a bit. I've never had grits before and it did not disappoint. I'm hooked, however the overall shrimp and grits dish I thought was too tomatoey and after a few bites I was sick of it.

The apple pie dessert, well I've never been a big fan of apple pie. However, if you like fresh and tart desserts this dessert is for you.

Have you been to Boneyard yet? Let me know what you think. How does it compare to true Southern food?
