No-Nonsense Chef-Driven Grub

The centerpiece of our open kitchen is a blood-sweat-and-tears, American-built wood-burning hearth with rotisserie that allows us to showcase our region’s variety while staying true to classic cooking methods from all around the world. It’s as awesome as it sounds.

In our dining room, guests will find bare tables and shiplap walls, service that is refined yet relaxed, and a dining experience that’s unpretentious, delicious, and, above all, fun.

Nearly a Decade of Minneapolis Restaurant Experience

Minneapolis-born Chef Jason Sawicki began his culinary career in a local deli.  More than just helping pique his interest in becoming a Chef, the job instilled a philosophy of taking a chance on anyone, no matter their background, as long as they shared a passion for cooking.

Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to parents of Polish and German descent, Sawicki developed his fascination with fare at culinary school before landing a position at the acclaimed Restaurant Alma, where he spent 3 years training under the leadership of James Beard Award Winner, Chef Alex Roberts, and his team.

Sawicki continued to hone his skills at Lyn 65 in Richfield, Minnesota, where he was the CDC for 2 years.  He synchronously founded a food truck with then business partner, Travis Serbus, called Wyn 65 that traversed the Twin Cities for 3 years leading to an opportunity to open the N.E. Minneapolis restaurants, Centro and Popol Vuh, as the Culinary Director alongside Executive Chef Jose Alarcon.

Chef Sawicki has worked in kitchens all over North America, including New York, Toronto, Chicago, and Montreal, but finds the most inspiration in cooking locally, with local fare, for local palates.
